Written in 1610. In The Golden Age
the Greek poet Homer introduces the audience to scenes from the time when the young world was in the Golden Age. Uranus dead, his elder son Titan should succeed by right but his younger son, Saturn, has the popular voice. A compromise is brokered: Saturn will reign till death (killing at birth any sons), succeeded by Titan's son. Heartbroken after first boy is killed, Saturn's wife, aided by his mother, sends away the next three (Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto) to be raised abroad. Rape, incest and conflict ensue as the Delphic oracle foretells the work of the Fates which kings try to evade. Staged reading.Performers Caroline Fitzgerald, Peter Harding, Graham Ingle, Katherine Kanter, Sarah Malin, Jennifer McEvoy, Michael McEvoy, Joseph Millson, Katy Odey, John Sackville, Victoria Woodward, Philip York.
