Achilles in Heels Edit

Stage Musical (2006)
Book, Music and Lyrics: Mark Bunyan


Musical comedy based on the Greek legend of Achilles. To thwart the oracle that predicted he would die in the Trojan War, mother immersed the infant Achilles in the River Styx to gain invincibility, but the undipped heels would remain his weak spots. She also took the additional precaution of sending him to her brother, King Lycomedes, to be raised up, disguised as a girl. Thus when eventually the Greeks needed to go to war against the Trojans, to recruit Achilles, they had first to convince him that he was male.
