Jason in Eureka: An Epic Adventure in Search of Golden Fleece and Other Local Treasures (2009) HIDVL

Jason in Eureka: An Epic Adventure in Search of Golden Fleece and Other Local Treasures is an adaptation of the classic myth of Jason and the Golden Fleece included local stories of veterans, seniors, Victorian architecture enthusiasts, artists and craftspeople, homeless and houseless people, students, and caregivers. In this telling, Jason is a young warrior with physical and emotional wounds, who has taken to sleeping on the lawn of a westside Eureka Victorian house. Here, two stories unfold: the epic adventures of Jason’s quest to capture the fabled Golden Fleece, and the local reactions to this mysterious stranger’s presence in an eclectic Eureka neighborhood. Playwright Peter Howard mixes elements of the classic tale of Jason & the Argonauts with realities of present-day Eureka, blurring the lines between mythic and the local heroes that exist among us every day. The play was performed outdoors at The Blue Ox Millworks. Historic Park Sanctuary Stage and Ink People Center for the Arts were also great community partner organizations. The cast of 37 included 30 community members and 14 local residents also served on the technical crew.
