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.”

    A great experience for a slightly different evening. The theater is located on a roof terrace behind the Roman agora at the foot of the Acopolis, the view alone is worth a visit. The play itself was lovingly staged and we laughed a lot, but it is more aimed at an adult audience. The time has just passed by.

    We loved the show. This experience was mesmerizing. The staff is very nice and offered a warm welcoming. The view from the rooftop is absolutely beautiful we can see Athena temple and a huge part of Plaka. The actors delivered so well their speeches. We learned, we laughted and we appreciated the show. We recommend this theater.

    A great performance for kids and adults

    They have managed to unite very different myths in a well linked story. The actors are excellent and you can tell they really enjoy the stage. It is a fun and very entertaining work in a cozy and small space, so it can be seen and heard perfectly and always close by. It will be enjoyed by both children and adults, who can understand the play at different levels with their jokes and word games. Your effort pays off, I wish you the best!
