DESCRIPTION

The epic tale of one man’s struggle to return home remains one of the most treasured pieces of world literature. Well suited to Aquila’s signature style of theatrical storytelling, the classic leaps to the stage as an action-packed sequel to Homer’s The Iliad. After leading the Greeks in a crushing victory over Troy, Odysseus turns his ships towards Ithaca, not imagining that his journey will be as long and treacherous as the 10-year war. This new adaptation captures his encounters with a fantastical array of mythical creatures, monsters, and divine forces, as Odysseus uses his strength, skill, and intellect to persevere and rejoin his family.
