A beautiful stage adaptation of Homer’s classic epic poem.
Odysseus is twenty years gone from Ithaca. Penelope has bluffed and delayed a growing band of murderous suitors, but as threats to her son and kingdom grow, her resolve weakens. Now a beggar arrives at the palace and asks the queen to hold off a new marriage until she’s heard his story—fantastic tales of her husband’s travels among monsters, witches, and gods. Penelope finds herself battling her husband’s very legend over fidelity, her kingdom and her vengeance.
