Now i am ready to tell how bodies are changed into different bodies.
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.
The world premiere of Tales from Ovid was at the Royal Shakespeare Company's Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in April 1999.
Simon Reade is the Literary Manager of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Tim Supple's acclaimed work for the theatre includes enchanting adaptations of Grimm Tales with Carol Ann Duffy, and of Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories.
