The Golden Fleece Sample

Hades learns that Jason is planing to use a magical amulet to find the Golden Fleece and that an expedition is soon to sail.

Hades Wait a mouldy minute! (To Audience) How can anybody sail the seas to find it? Does someone know where it is? Has someone got his or her thieving mitts on that blooming golden amulet? Come on, brats! Own up! Tell yer Uncle Hades… Who’s got the amulet?

Audience Participation.

Detritus I don’t quite follow, Boss? What’s the problem?

Hades Jason, eh? Mmm? I remember that name. I helped his Uncle Pelias out a long time ago, as I recall. You know? Back at the beginning of the Panto. That wretched amulet’s the only thing that can track down the whereabouts of the Golden Fleece. If it’s found...? That’s my plans wrecked. I thought Jason was dead. Never mind. If I have my way, he soon will be. I swear, by all the gods, his clogs will be truly popped!

Detritus Can’t you steal the wotsit…? Er, amulet off Jason, find the Fleece and destroy it forever?

Even Detritus is amazed at his foresight.

Hades What was that?

Detritus (Now confused) What I meant was… You could steal Jason’s fleece off, cause its cold out, and then have your omelette destroyed! I mean, fleece off Jason’s hamlet with a stolen omelette! That is… Er…?

He shuffles away, picking his nose and doing a soft-shoe shuffle.

Hades You’re not just an ugly face, are you Detritus? That’s brilliant. What I need is some greedy, mortal fool to do me dirty work for me… (Thinks) Got it! (Laughs) I’ve got this sneaking suspicion that jolly, jumped-up Jason will come to a very sticky end.

Evil Music   

Hades Where Zeus has gone, now Hades goes before!

Now, I’m in charge! Let slip the Dogs of War!

I’ll seek some evil heart and then employ it…

Whoever finds the Fleece, I shall destroy it!

He laughs a dreadful laugh and they both exit.
