Jason and the Argonauts started life as a studio album by composer Charles Miller in 1998 before being commissioned by the London School of Musical Theatre as a full-length musical in 2005, with book and lyrics by Tim Sanders and Paul Carpenter.
In the years that followed, it developed across a series of performances in both England and Continental Europe before being substantially reconceptualised for this production at the Bridewell Theatre, led by Steven Dexter.
This irreverent musical treatment of the classic Greek myth follows Jason the jumped-up avenger, as he sets out on the seemingly impossible task of retrieving the Golden Fleece to regain his rightful crown from the cruel King Pelias.
