An awesome adventure of myth and modernity inspired by Ancient Greek classic, The Odyssey. Outwit greedy monsters, escape the savage cyclops, survive the sweet-singing siren sisters (played by the dolls of Barbie) and overcome the sucking and spewing whirlpool to save the day with the cleverest Greek hero of all time — Odysseus (he of wooden horse fame). A Pandora’s Box of storytelling, theatre, song and buffoonery, puppets, props and participation, told by Oddy the great great great (etc) grandson of Odysseus.

Come to the pre show Playshop to make a monster puppet and help create our own brand new Odyssean adventure!

“Rude, witty, gory and silly with a big dollop of artistic licence, the epic tales of Odysseus have never been so alive and kicking!”
St George’s Bristol

“We were all captivated; you have a wonderful way of making everyone feel at ease and getting everyone to be part of the story.”
Highdown Primary School

“Thank you again for such a great show. The children adored it and I think the adults learnt a lot more about Greek mythology!”
Bridport Literary Festival

Performed by Michael Loader who has mixed feelings towards the Ancient Greek classics ever since he played Jason, of the Golden Fleece at junior school with plastic sword and plumed helmet (good news!) but had to kiss Carol Reed who played Medea his wife! (NOT so good!)

Running Time: 2 hours (with interval)
