 Synopsis:

The gods have grown old, they’re tired of ruling, they don’t get no respect & the great days of human sacrifices are over. Even animal sacrifices have fallen off & are now reduced to (gasp!) tins of Spam! Why? They haven’t a clue.

Enter a gaggle of actors who just happen to be picnicking on the slopes of Olympus. The gods decide to do a little market research below while taking a much-needed holiday, & conscript the actors to take their places & duties. No problem, says Thespis, leader of the troupe. But be warned, says Jupiter, the price of failure is that Thespis will be constituted as ‘Father of the Drama’ & held accountable for everything that every author may write for ages to come.

As those unfit for any office quickly learn, the actors soon find their charges & duties are not as easy as they appear…
