More Info


The world is ravaged by war and humanity teeters on the brink of destruction. The pantheon of the gods turns to Hades, lord of the underworld, and petitions him to return an ancient hero’s spirit to earth. In order to determine who is to be sent back a tournament is set to be held in the underworld. The contenders, a few of the most renowned heroes throughout history (and an interloper or two), are pulled from their eternal rest and vary in their willingness to participate. Regardless, all find themselves combatants in the competition. It ends when one is crowned the victor and restored to earth.

This show is simultaneously the story of a God and the world he rules, a violence spectacular and an exploration of our perceptions and notions about violence and heroism.
