About the event

From The Lost Boys comes a new exciting show for summer 2019.

Join The Lost Boys as they journey to a time of Gods and Heroes, where Monsters, Myth and reality collide causing absolute chaos. Derby LIVE favourites, The Lost Boys turn their attention to Ancient Greek Mythology for their latest adaptation, expect a wacky adventure (as if they made it whilst trying to get their Blue Peter badge) featuring wigs, swords, sandals and sticky back plastic.

The Lost Boys have been on an archaeological mission to find an ancient Greek artefact that some thought was only a myth. An artefact so powerful it could change our world completely, as it did once before. An ancient gift that Zeus himself created...Pandora's Box. Did The Lost Boys succeed, we hear you thinking? (don't worry it is only a figure of speech, we can't actually hear your thoughts - that would be weird). So, did they succeed, have they made the archaeological discovery of the century? Yes, they did succeed, and they are going to present it to you as part of their new show, Monsters, Myths and Mayhem, coming to Markeaton Craft Village this summer.

What could possibly go wrong, when two hapless, theatre-type idiots get their hands on the very vessel that contained all the ills and misery of the Ancient Greek World. What calamities and hilarities might ensue as The Lost Boys delve into Greek mythology and Greek Theatre? Will there be monsters,- you'd expect so as they are in the title! Will there by mayhem - have you been to a Lost Boys show before! Will there be questionable costume choices?  Will there by throw-backs to glorious Greek epic movies from their childhood? Will there be music, will there be dance, will there be love? Will there be Australian Mermen?  Will there be a talented chorus doing most of the work because The Lost Boys are getting too old for these shenanigans? Join The Lost Boys on an epic adventure this summer and witness the Greek Myths as never seen before.

An epic and comic exploration of classical Greek mythology including well known tales featuring Hercules, Achilles, Theseus, Perseus, The Minotaur, Medusa and the Kraken. All delivered in The Lost Boys inimitable style.
