Stephen Fry To Revisit Ancient Greece with New Book and Show
Raconteur Stephen Fry marks the release of his fascinating new book Mythos with a special live event at St David’s Hall on Wednesday November 8.
Mythos is Stephen’s vivid re-telling of the Greek myths. Bringing to life the gods, monsters and mortals of Ancient Greece, he reimagines their astonishing stories for the modern world. These thrilling and racy tales of war, debauchery, revenge, love and jealousy have inspired artists and writers from Shakespeare to Michelangelo to Marvel Comics.
Since 1981, Fry has become a household name across the UK. Whilst studying for an English degree in Cambridge, Stephen met his long-term comedy collaborator Hugh Laurie, and the pair soon established themselves as a highly successful double act on shows like A Bit of Fry & Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster. His hilarious reputation was further enhanced by legendary BBC series, Blackadder.
Stephen took the world of film by storm too with a Golden Globe Award-nominated lead performance in Wilde, and he also garnered rave reviews in Gosford Park and V for Vendetta to name just a few of his roles.
He is also a best-selling writer, radio personality and documentary-maker, and his distinctive delivery has led to much voice-over work including The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Alice in Wonderland movies, and all the Harry Potter audiobooks. Plus from 2003 to 2016, he was the host of the hugely popular quiz show, QI.
