Mandell Studio Theater | Adapted by Charlie Bethel From the Epic Poem by Homer | Directed by Michael Carleton | WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION
Shipwrecks, sirens, and sex goddesses meet cannibalism, death, and revenge
Acclaimed solo artist Charlie Bethel (Beowulf) re-imagines Homer's famous myth in a faithful yet utterly accessible format for those who slept through Greek Lit. Voyage across land and sea, through the underworld, to the top of Mt. Olympus with the brave and courageous hero, Odysseus, as he valiantly seeks his homeland and the arms of his wife and child. You're sure to recognize yourself in this sometimes comic, often harrowing, but always thrilling, epic adventure.
The Odyssey is considered a family show and is suitable for most audiences.
