Told by Alexander Wright with an epic cinematic score by Phil Grainger.

 A lad lives half-way up a historic hill. A teenager is on a road trip to the city in a stolen car. A boy is driving a chariot, pulling the sun across the sky.

Award-winning "masters of storytelling", Wright & Grainger bring from the UK their brand-new story about little things that leave big marks.

A contemporary retelling of the ancient myth of Helios – the Sun -and the fall of Phaeton..

Following on from their internationally-acclaimed productions of ORPHEUS (Best in Fringe, Dunedin Fringe 2019), EURYDICE (Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe 2020) and Festival of Colour favourite THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS (Critics Circle Award, Adelaide Fringe 2023), join soaring performer Alexander Wright with his tape player and delicate tale to tell.
