Athens is in a sorry state of affairs. The great tragedian, Euripides, is dead, and Dionysus, the god of the theater, has to listen to third-rate poetry. So, he determines to pack his belongings onto his trusty slave, Xanthias, and journey to the underworld to bring back Euripides! Hi-jinks ensue. (Summary by Libby Gohn)

Reviews

good play


(3 stars)

great job by many in the cast but unfortunately there were several readers who were very difficult to understand so that I had to read along with a book. but what's the point of an audiobook when you need a written text too?


(3.5 stars)

the cast was great except for the Dionysus character. He was much too difficult to hear at times
