Dash back to the beginning as we unpick the best epic stories from around the globe. This is the theatre of way-out tales told by two irreverent and passionate storytellers.
Many of these stories have lost relevance, interest, or have faded away over time – and we drag them into the modern world, peel them to pieces and make them present again. Our world may be different, and maybe now we think we’re too modern, bitter or cynical for these stories. But anyone could be a hero if you tell it right. Even two poets.
From the cradle of civilisation to the one about the wooden horse, with heroes ranging from Gilgamesh to Vin Diesel, THE EPIC lovingly takes the stories you think you know and asks them to
tell us another.

“..it’s charming, it’s educational and it’s joyously irreverent. The passion which these two performers have, for storytelling and the telling of those stories in particular is palpable, and their enjoyment in the retelling is infectious.”- The AU Review
“The Epic is epic not only in the scope within each story, not only in the infectious enthusiasm brought to the stage by each performer, but also in the depth and breadth of the knowledge about how these tales fit into human and cultural experiences.”- Australian Stage
“A pole-to-pole expedition in search of the world’s elemental epic stories, and an entertaining and illuminating journey it is.” – The West Australian
