An evening with Jennifer Saint and Rosie Garland

Deansgate is delighted to welcome Jennifer Saint (Ariadne, Elektra, Atalanta) and Rosie Garland (The Palace of Curiosities, What Girls Do In The Dark) in celebration of their latest mythological retellings, Hera and The Fates
 
About Hera

When Hera, immortal goddess and daughter of the ancient Titan Cronos, helps her brother Zeus to overthrow their tyrannical father, she dreams of ruling at his side. As they establish their reign on Mount Olympus, Hera suspects that Zeus might be just as ruthless and cruel as the father they betrayed.

The enthralling tale of a powerful Greek goddess maligned in both myth and ancient history, Saint's luminous retelling releases Hera from her eternal reputation as a cruel and vengeful stepmother, casting fresh light on the indomitable Greek queen of gods.


About The Fates


Before Gods and mortals, there were The Fates - three sisters born out of Nyx's darkness, destined to weave the lives, and deaths, of humankind for eternity.
 
But immortality is a heavy burden, and Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos are captivated by the gloriously human lives of the mortals below, especially those of the great warrior Atalanta and her ill-fated lover, Meleager.
 
However, being a Goddess of Fate doesn't make you a master of it. Will these three sisters find a way to free the couple, and themselves, from their destinies? Or will they be bound by Fate forever?
