About

Join Apollo and Daphne, as well as other Greek Gods and mortals, in this wild untold version of events. It is an unforgettable rom-com, a story of love, adventure and misunderstandings.

Playwright’s Words: Abagail

Jakob and I attended Ecole Philippe Gaulier together in 2020, however, like many students we parted ways when the school shut its doors during the first wave of COVID-19. While my family and I remained in France, where I continued my studies at Gaulier, Jakob returned to Paris in the summer of 2022. It has been an unbelievable journey to explore Greek Mythology and to write and create alongside a partner who is open and willing to collaborate at the highest level.

Playwright’s Words: Jakob

Our creative journey is an adventure. We met when the world seemed to collapse. Holding onto our vision of making theatre together, through the storm of uncertanty, and now beeing able to perform the fruits of our collaboration is statisfying.

I like the ephemeral thing about theatre, every performance is like a ghost: it's there and then it's gone.

Maggie Smith / Actress

Theatre is a series of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.
