We join our hero as he leaps from a burning fighter plane and hurtles towards the sea. Could his fate be sealed like Icarus who descended from the skies on melted wings? The ancient world of Greek mythology bleeds into World War II as our champion tries to escape a labyrinth of hospital corridors and destroy the Minotaur who lurks within his comatose nightmare.
Can his wartime sweetheart help him find his way out? We can only watch as the gods decide his fate from their toe-tapping celestial dancehall.
Pants on Fire returns with its unique fusion of dynamic theatre, epic storytelling, puppetry, film, original music and a live band.
"A sumptuous and applaudable piece of work, full of imagination and pleasing detail and a cast who all shone…Pants on Fire are creating wonderful and imaginative Theatre"
