Part of Helios


All Ages


HELIOS - told by Alexander Wright with cinematic score by Phil Grainger

A lad lives half-way up a historic hill. A teenager is on a road trip to the city in a stolen car. A boy is driving a chariot, pulling the sun across the sky.

Award-winning "masters of storytelling", Wright&Grainger tour from the UK to Aotearoa with their brand-new story about the son of the god of the sun. A story about pride, about growing up, and about the invisible monuments we plant in our landscapes.

A contemporary retelling of the ancient myth of Helios - the sun - and the fall of Phaeton.

Following on from their internationally-acclaimed productions of ORPHEUS (Best in Fringe, Dunedin Fringe 2019), EURYDICE (Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe 2020) and THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS (Critics Circle Award, Adelaide Fringe 2023), join soaring performer Alexander Wright with his tape player and delicate tale to tell.

“This company truly are the best at storytelling” ★★★★★ - Three Weeks

"A shining little piece of theatrical alchemy" - Lyn Gardner, StageDoor (UK)

"An electric hour of performance" - Playbill (UK)

"Wright&Grainger have a beautiful gift for taking Ancient Greek stories and hauling them into the 21st century, translating the touching and keeping the human truth intact." ★★★★- The Wee Review (UK)

"A magical, memorable, and stirring story ... Helios will have you laughing, crying and everything in between." -Theatre Travels (UK/AUS)
