Octavian pushes back against promiscuity and the tenuous alliance with Mark Antony finally unravels, over both women and money. Both Vorenus and Pullo lose everything they hold dear, and the stage is finally set for a showdown in Alexandria.

Artemis and Athena think Atalanta is ready to meet the Arktoi – the young followers Artemis calls “little bears.” Atalanta teaches the girls to hunt and fish and the ways of the wild, and is surprised by how much she starts to enjoy their company. When the Arktoi return home to their families, Atalanta realizes she needs to learn more about the human world, and strikes out on her own. But danger lurks in the forest. Combining the artistry of foremost contemporary theater-makers with the timeless stories of Greek myth and the imaginative power of audio, Live from Mount Olympus is an adventure for tweens and their grownups.
