Achilles

About Achilles

Glasgow’s acclaimed Company of Wolves re-imagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance by Ewan Downie. Achilles tells the story of the greatest hero of the Greeks during the Trojan War: how his best friend is killed by the champion of the Trojans, his desperate grief, and his terrible vengeance. In a fusion of storytelling, dance and song, Achilles is the story of a man’s exorcism: a burning out of his vulnerability, his rage, and his humanity.

Suitable for ages 12+

"a thrilling experience" ... The Scotsman

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Achilles are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
