SYNOPSIS

The Greek Gods are alive and well and living in Los Angeles where they remain a quarrelsome, arrogant, and mischievous family. With the ability to inhabit random bodies, they take great delight in wreaking havoc on the affairs of both mortals and demigods alike. FILMORE and MARIE-NOEL, two of ZEUS’ illegitimate children, are stranded on an island ranch just off the coast of Los Angeles. As demigods, they age slowly and would otherwise live to the ripe old age of 450 years were it not for HERA, ZEUS’ jealous wife, who wants them dead. With the hope of delivering his children to new lives, ZEUS fates a play, "The Importance of Being Earnest," for them to perform. If they act badly or not at all they will be killed.
