HERC A Queer Greek Mythology Retelling

by | Read by Kristin Atherton, Marlowe Chan-Reeves, Loreece Harrison, Maryam Grace, Sebastian Humphreys, Jay Lafayette Valentine, Theo Solomon, Gary Turner and a Full Cast

Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Everyone thinks they know the story of Hercules, but this retelling changes everything. A talented ensemble brings to life those who surround the famed hero. Previously untold or ignored stories of family, lovers, enemies, and more are included. Each narrator represents a different person connected to Herc; the story unearths secret lovers, violent interactions, buried crimes, and more. This format presents an engaging tapestry of time periods and relationships that are surprisingly funny and frequently heartbreaking. With contemporary language and emotional deliveries, the personal narratives are interspersed with letters and speeches that paint a full picture of the time and lives of all of those involved. Listeners will find themselves immersed. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
