What will you do to go home again? Lisa Peterson’s adaptation of The Odyssey brings new life to this ancient epic. Four young women trapped in the limbo of a refugee camp retell Odysseus’s adventures as they struggle with their own search for a home. A production based on the revelatory new translation by Emily Wilson, its bold theatricality brings new humor and grace to a story we all think we know.
The Acting Company is a Tony Award–winning touring company founded in 1972 by John Houseman for the purpose of bringing high-quality theatre to communities from coast to coast.
Thanks to support from the John W. Kurtich Foundation, all high school students are admitted to this production free of charge.
