Scenes from The Odyssey

Scenes from The Odyssey

March  3–6, 2022


With her characteristic wit and irreverence, renowned playwright Mary Zimmerman transforms Homer’s epic tale of a hero’s arduous journey home into a captivating, contemporary and imaginative adventure. This sexy and inspired adaptation challenges Odysseus to overcome terrifying monsters, seductive sirens, a possessive nymph and the gods themselves if he ever hopes to see his wife and son again.
