Greek tragedy will never be the same again, not now that it has been given the Spymonkey treatment - imagine Horrible Histories for adults with a dash of Carry On thrown in for good measure.

Spymonkey bring their latest show, Oedipussy, to the Traverse tonight for a four-night run.

The company, who claim to take their inspiration from “Barbarella, Bowie and a little bit of Bond,” return to the Cambridge Street theatre with their award-winning, no-holds-barred subversion of Greek tragedy in a show hailed as ‘joyous’, ‘ingenious’ and ‘unapologetically silly’.
