Achilles

Glasgow theatre company Company of Wolves re-imagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance by Ewan Downie at the Citizens Theatre!

Achilles

About Achilles

Achilles tells the story of the greatest hero of the Greeks during the Trojan War: how his best friend is killed by the champion of the Trojans, his desperate grief, and his terrible vengeance. A fusion of storytelling, dance and song, Achilles is a story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity.

Supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland in association with Platform, Dance House and Citizens Theatre. This performance will be part of manipulate Visual Theatre Festival in 2018 produced by Puppet Animation Scotland.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Achilles are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
