MLC Forum proudly presents Greek Adventure
In the Cave of Cyclops
Upon landing on a large island to refit their ship, Odysseus and his men discover a cave with sheep, milk, and cheese. Desperately hungry, the crew feasts, paying little heed to Odysseus’ warning. To their horror, the owner, a cyclops named Polyphemus returns to his cave and sees the men eating his food. He has a healthy appetite for his unexpected guests and they seemingly have no way of escape.
Daedalus and Icarus
Daedalus was an inventor for King Minos who treasured him so much that he would not ever let Daedalus leave Crete. Together with his son, Icarus, they devise a plan of escape. Unfortunately, careful instructions were not followed and the price was paid. This moralistic show resembles the Fourth Commandment, “Honor your father and mother that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Jason and the Golden Fleece
Rightful heir to the throne of Ithaca, Jason was left to a centaur when his father died and his mother fled the kingdom. In an attempt to reclaim the throne from his father’s cousin, Pelias, Jason was almost put to death. Through a sudden twist of deception, Jason is unable to take the throne until he returns with the legendary Golden Fleece from the land of Colchis. With some help from above and a mix of companions, Jason leaves on his adventure, encounters several interesting characters, and returns much differently than he expected.
