It’s been twenty years since he last saw her face, his son, his city. Now, at last, this soldier is coming home. Along the way, he’ll defy the gods, outwit monsters, survive betrayal, resist the seduction of goddesses and mortals, and dodge death daily. But…

Odysseus. Will. Come. Home.

It’s been thirty years since this most epic of adventure stories, Homer’s The Odyssey, first graced the Lookingglass stage.  Now the classic tale, as durable as its hero, returns home under the masterful hands of Mary Zimmerman (The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Metamorphoses, Treasure Island).

Written and directed by Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman
From the Robert Fitzgerald translation of Homer’s epic poem
