“Wright+Grainger are some of my favourite theatre makers worldwide. The worlds they create are immense, heartbreaking, and will stay with you until long after their songs have echoed out. Do not miss the world premiere of Helios from this UK duo.” – Rachel Chant, Festival Director

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. Internationally award-winning ‘masters of storytelling’ (FourthWallMedia) bring a brand-new story about little things that leave big marks. Following on from their hugely acclaimed productions of Orpheus, Eurydice and The Gods The Gods The Gods, join Wright+Grainger in a little room with a tape player and delicate tale to tell.

“One of the great highlights of a decade of fringe” – SeeSaw
