Odysseus journeys home. Penelope awaits her husband. Refugees long for peace. Is a new start possible after 10 years of war?

A new visceral, physical adaptation of Homer’s exciting adventure story of homecoming with gods, monsters and the hope for forgiveness. Set against the tragedy of war, with refugees seeking safety and a place to call home, this world premiere highlights Odysseus’s journey as a parable of a man coming to terms with the things he has done.

Homer’s tale is full of adventure and magical beings, making it also plenty of fun for a family audience.
