Based on Midas and the Golden Touch
From 12 September 2022 watch three of the most loved and enduring Greek myths for free as part of Unicorn Online.
This series of three new short plays by some of the UK’s most exciting writers have been creatively filmed and edited to bring theatre to life online for children. Directed by the Unicorn’s Associate Director Rachel Bagshaw, the films reinvent and reimagine the original myths enabling pupils to explore the resonances of Greek Myths to today’s world anew.

Greek Myths Unplugged was developed with the support of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Digital Accelerator for Arts and Culture.

--------------------------- Unicorn Theatre - Transforming young lives through theatre
At the Unicorn we create new, inventive and enthralling theatre experiences for children aged up to 13. Every year, we welcome around 65,000 families and schools through our doors, and many thousands more through Unicorn Online. We believe that young people of all ages, perspectives and abilities have the right to experience exciting, entertaining and inspiring work and we actively seek out children who wouldn’t otherwise attend, offering free tickets where needed. We develop work with children from our partner schools and community groups to ensure that our work remains relevant and informed by the young people we serve. Our values of courage, curiosity and respect run through everything we do.
