Synopsis

Ovid was a poet in ancient Rome whose epic poem, The Metamorphoses, retells stories from Greek Mythology in which gods and goddesses fancy a variety of nymphs and earthlings who don’t want to know or who do something to incur their wrath and get changed into animals, insects, trees and flowers We’re going to unplug Ovid from the Latin landscape and plug him into the here and now. We’re going to look at the girls in his stories - those who said no, one who said yes and a couple who broke the rules - and reinvent them for ourselves.
