The greatest adventure story of all time comes to the stage in a lively and theatrical fashion that will enthrall audiences of all ages. An old man enters the court of Ithaca where Queen Penelope and her son Telemachus have waited years for King Odysseus to return from the War with Troy. The old man says he sailed with the famous Greek hero and his tale comes to life before our eyes. But who is the old man and why has he come so far to tell this story? It turns out it is Odysseus himself, disguised by the goddess Athena so that he can be reunited with his family and be revenged on those who plan to steal his kingdom. Because of the play-within-a-play format used, period costumes and sets are not needed. The episodes are re-enacted with clever theatrics rather than spectacle and special effects. Here is an exciting theatre piece with many roles for an adventurous cast.
