Synopsis

Condemned to shoulder the world "for ever" by the gods he dared defy, freedom seems unattainable to Atlas.



But then he receives an unexpected visit from Heracles, the one man strong enough to share the burden, and it seems they can strike a bargain that might release him ...



Jeanette Winterson asks difficult questions about the nature of choice and coercion in her dazzling retelling of the myth of Atlas and Heracles.



Visionary and inventive, believable and intimate, Weight turns the familiar on its head to show us ourselves in a new light.
