It's All Greek To Me (Hilary, 2017)

The Oxford University Light Entertainment Society is proud to present 'It's All Greek To Me!', an epic (musical) tale of gods and heroes in a quest to stop Hades' questionably realistic evil plans to take over Olympus. Unexpected heroes, mildly terrifying villains, some really dodgy accents, and an enormous amount of wine await!
