Giving It The Midas Touch.


A poorly made wish and a closely guarded secret wreak havoc on King Midas.  Find out why being the king's own barber is the worse job in the world and whether the wine guzzling god Dionysus granted a golden reprieve. Fun and frivolity from the ancient world.



Dawn has a passion for telling classical and epic stories. Dawn takes on board a different Epic each year. 2014 was the year for Telling The Iliad. Which epic story will she explore next year? 



CLICK BELOW and listen to Dawn telling the story of The Single Wish.  This three minute fairy tale  is told all over the world.  If only King Midas had heard this story his life would have turned out so differently!
