Daphne and Ralph are young classics professors who have just made a discovery that’s sure to turn them into academic superstars: an ancient Greek manuscript of incalculable value. But clumsy Daphne has managed to misplace it, and if she doesn’t find it soon, her career hopes will come crashing down.

 

Despairing, she cries out, “Save me, gods of ancient Greece!”…and the gods actually appear! The Ivy League will never be the same as a pair of screwball deities encounters the carnal complexity of college coeds, campus capers, and conspicuous consumption. Comic playwright Ken Ludwig, who delighted Globe audiences with Robin Hood! and Baskerville, returns with a knockabout world premiere.
