A Youth & Family Play

A funny, physical & sideways look at myths and fairytales and their battle to survive in our world of technology.  Myth Understandings begins as two excitable scientists are test-driving their new automatic, personal thinking machine, the "iHed ", containing all the worlds myths and stories. Technical disaster throws the two into the middle of a world of adventure, excitement and danger.
You’ve probably heard these stories before, but not quite this way: fantastic, incredible, preposterous, absurd, superlative and sophisticated.
