Jason & the Argonauts
Jason’s uncle is a tyrant. He murdered Jason’s father, banished Jason as a baby, and made the kingdom his own. No one has dared to stand up to him…until now. Jason has grown up and is ready to claim his rightful place on the throne. To unite his people behind him, he and his crew on the Argo must sail to the other side of the world to find and bring back the Golden Fleece. With two actors, a handful of action figures, and one incredible wooden cart, Scotland’s Visible Fictions creates an adventure story to inspire the hero in each of us. The company returns to North America for its Chicago debut after two successful US tours to New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Recommended for ages 9 and up.
Running time: 65 min
