The Frogs: Re-Croaked

The Frogs: Recroaked is a modern adaptation of Aristophanes' cheeky, political comedy, The Frogs. After deciding that the mortal world is distinctly lacking in the arts since the death of Lord Byron, Dionysus, the god of all things fun, decides to journey down to the underworld with his slave Xanthias, and bring Lord Byron back from the dead. Disguised as his older half-brother Herakles, Dionysus and Xanthias have to rely on their wit and charm to get past the strange inhabitants of the underworld including the mischievous frogs, a group of hippies, and sassy innkeepers; as well as negotiate a rift between Lord Byron and his former friend and fellow writer Mary Shelley.
