The Odyssey

Written by Homer

Adapted and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman
Adapted from the translation of The Odyssey by Robert Fitzgerald
Directed by David Jortner


Set immediately following the Trojan War, the story tracks our hero Odysseus's ten-year journey to return home to his wife and son. This larger-than-life tale is reimagined on the stage with vivid imagery and flowing words. This thrilling tale is filled with travels across the sea, battles, exotic locations, monsters, gods, and human foibles. The Odyssey is a true classic transformed beautifully for a modern audience.

"Zimmerman lets us grasp huge ideas by giving it to us with beauty, grace, and respect. She is a master story-teller."
