Part adventure, part romance, part Revenge Tragedy, Homer’s epic story of monsters, magicians, witches and goddesses. A tale which has been mesmerising audiences now for over 3,000 years…
Odysseus, hero of the Trojan War and inventor of the ‘wooden horse’, be able to make it home to Ithaca in time to wreak revenge on the vicious gang of suitors who are besieging his palace, fighting for his beloved wife, Penelope’s hand in marriage and threatening to kill his son?
In order to do so he must first outwit Polyphemus, the one-eyed giant Cyclops who eats men for breakfast; Circe the deadly witch who turns men into livestock; the Sirens whose divine and irresistible song lures men to a pitiful end; Scylla the six-headed serpent and Lord Poseidon, the Earth-Shaker who pursues Odysseus across the wide-seas in a vendetta-fuelled rage.
Odysseus must use all his famed ingenuity to defy death and descend down to the underworld there in the Halls of Hades to commune with the blind prophet Tiresias.
Help is at hand – Odysseus has the immortal goddess, Athene, by his side who holds an enduring soft spot for him…
