Olympus On The Moon — One-Act Comedy

OlympusMoonLOGOThe History of Western Civilization in One Act

by J.D. Newman

(Perfect for Professional, College/University, Community, High School, Middle School,  and other Youth Theatre Groups)

At the fall of the Roman Empire, men have scaled Mount Olympus, driving Jupiter and his wife Juno to seek exile on the Moon where they will raise a new race of beings to serve and worship them.  Mercury relates what is happening on Earth in the absence of the King and Queen of the Olympian Gods as Apollo and Mars drive men on Earth between creation and destruction.  Diana and Athena steal the golden wings that Vulcan crafted for himself and his wife Venus to reach the new Olympus.  Removed from human history, centuries pass for Jupiter in seeming instants while his plans of creating a new race fail. In the end, the prophesy is fulfilled that another will conquer Jupiter.   A “golden wingless bird” lands on the moon and emits a man who destroys Jupiter’s power by conquering his final sanctuary.  After the invader leaves, Jupiter is filled with new hope as his Olympus on the Moon becomes a new inspiration for humanity.
