Full description
Watch a unique, funny and touching play, right next to the Acropolis museum. Do not leave Greece without joining that thrilling experience, a theater performance given by actors talking in English and learn about some of the most interesting myths related to ancient Greece. The story goes like this: “During his visit to the Acropolis, a present-day tourist slips and gets knocked out. When he awakens, he finds himself transported to the 5th century B.C, Athens. There, he will have an intense talk with Medea, watch the daughters of Oedipus grieve, chase the god of Wealth himself around the Parthenon and find out how Odysseus solved a Cyclopean problem.”

What a pleasure to attend such a passionate and creative piece that was both educational and very entertaining. The organizers, actors and technicians were all super friendly and talented, the story a fun fusion of four famous ancient Greek plots, the costumes and masks effective, and the 'bonus' backdrop of the Acropolis above the rooftop venue was breathtaking. Delightful wine too!

Was definitely an interesting experience, worth seeing in a very relaxed environment, open air and right under the Acropolis. Funny at times, the actors and acting was great, masks and outfitsalso quite creative.better if you have an idea of the major banes in Greek mythology too so it becomes more entertaining. Also I feel that the sound system needs some improvement, being open air sometimes volume was low. The presenter also should have been plugged in to sound system introducing the play.

It was so funny and the staff and actors were so nice. They let us stay behind to take pictures of the view and they offered to take pictures of us on the stage. They also gave us some cold water whilst we watched the show. You have an amazing view of the acropolis in the background too and it was an amazing experience. You can take pictures and videos as long as your flash isn’t on. Definitely going to be a highlight of our stay.
