Herc

Phoenicia Rogerson

This should be the story of Hercules: his twelve labours, his endless adventures ... everyone's favourite hero, right? Well, it's not.

This is the story of everyone else:

  • Alcmene: Herc's mother (She has knives everywhere)
  • Hylas: Herc's first friend (They were more than friends)
  • Megara: Herc's wife (She'll tell you about their marriage)
  • Eurystheus: Oversaw Herc's labours (He never asked for the job)
  • His friends, his enemies, his wives, his children, his lovers, his rivals, his gods, his victims. It's time to hear their stories.

Told with humour and heart, Herc gives voice to the silenced characters, in this feminist, queer (and sometimes shocking) retelling of classic Hercules myth.
