Visible Fictions arrives at People’s Light in this “sly, silly, sophisticated, and altogether winning take on an ancient Greek myth” (The New York Times). Two actors portray over 25 characters with boundless energy and numerous action figures in the tale of Jason and his crew as they journey to the other side of the world to bring home the Golden Fleece. The production is aimed at anyone from age 9 and beyond and is guaranteed to entertain kids as well as adults with fond memories of the original book and film.
Douglas Irvine, Visible Fictions’ Artistic Director said “I’ve never forgotten the thrill of seeing the Harryhausen film version for the first time as a child. The purity, inventiveness, thrills and scares it and the original story offer is something I want to pass onto new audiences.” Visible Fictions is recognized in the UK and internationally for creating innovative and dynamic theatrical productions for young people. Since 2006, the show has toured the UK, Canada, Australia, and the U.S. (including New Victory Theatre in New York).
Producing Director Zak Berkman recalls “We first met Doug Irvine in Glasgow in January 2014 and immediately discovered a kindred spirit for theatre that excites people of all ages. We’re thrilled to bring Jason and the Argonauts to Malvern. It’s silly, ingenious, and lands in the sweet spot that allows multiple generations to enjoy a beautiful story together. “
