About this show

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 after a pair of screwball deities encounter the carnal complexity of college coeds, campus capers, and conspicuous consumption. Comic playwright Ken Ludwig, who delighted Globe Theatre audiences with Robin Hood! and Baskerville, returns with a knockabout new play directed by multi-Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (the Globe's Love's Labor's Lost).
