An ingenious adaptation of Homer’s Greek myth, The Odyssey begins in a modern context, with a young woman struggling to understand a translation of the great work. As the play progresses, the ten-year journey of Odysseus is brought to life through classic mythological characters like Polyphemus the Cyclops, Poseidon, Calypso, and the Sirens. Zimmerman’s play makes a grand show of fantastic adventure to be enjoyed by all.
