Ted Hughes's remarkable sequence of twenty-four tales from Ovid's Metamorphoses won the Whitbread Book of the Year in 1997 and was celebrated in The Times by Michael Hofmann as 'one of the great works of the century'. Tim Supple and Simon Reade have taken ten tales from Hughes's version of the greatest poem of classical inspiration and transformed them for the stage. Erotic, elegant, violent and magical, this dramatisation of Tales from Ovid realises the immense power of Hughes's original text, which is already recognised as a literary landmark.
