The Odyssey: On Stage
First told almost three thousand years ago, this epic poem has been retold all over the world. The Odyssey is the gripping story of the hero Odysseus, his wife Penelope, and their son Telemachus. It tells of gods and monsters, witches and drugs, but it is also a tale of revenge, migration and friendship. Emily Wilson’s translation was acclaimed as a cultural landmark on its publication. It is performed as a staged reading in six parts by a company of eleven actors and six narrators.
