“Tell me a old story for modern times. Find the beginning.”

How do you go about adapting the Odyssey? 24 books, over 100 characters, 500 miles travelled. There are so many viewpoints, so many stories, where do you begin? How do you find the beginning of such vast epic? We’re invite you to join us on the original adventure story.

A world full of gods and monsters and men. Through the eyes of Odysseus and the women who help and hinder him we will learn about war, identity, power and poverty.

One man’s journey will help us understand the changing meanings of home in a strange world.
