No one brings mythology to life quite like local merry pranksters The Struts and Frets Players.

Cupid and Psyche will pierce the heart of audiences with its achingly clever and gaspingly funny interpretation of the story of these most famous of lovers. Struts and Frets’ irreverently relevant take on the story is a riotous blaze of puns, puppets, pithy quips, flying Barbies and men in drag.

If you need more than that, these young actors also happen to be fantastic. What remains amazing about this group is how they manage to uphold the integrity of their source material with such love, while making it fresh, hilarious and wildly exciting. Cupid and Psyche is a love letter to these immortal characters and for a lucky audience.

— Barb Stewart

From the Fringe program:

Psyche is a mortal girl who wins both the love of Cupid and the hatred of his mother, Venus – a dangerous combination.

The impudent mortal thespians who brought you such Fringe hits as Perseus, Gilgamesh and the Rintoul Award-winning Sigurd the Dragonslayer now present their twist on a classic Roman fairy tale.

A comedy of true love, disembodied voices and venomous sun-sheep, Cupid and Psyche proves that love is blind… especially in the dark.
