Event Description


Greek stuff (Sex! Swords! Sandals!) with all the boring bits removed!

From the company that brought you ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Great Expectations’, ‘Dracula’ and ‘Canterbury Tales’ comes a one-man performance of ‘The Odyssey’; a tale more exciting than excitement itself. Based (very loosely!) on the epic poem by Homer, The Odyssey is the journey of all journeys…

To Hell and back again. Gods and Monsters. And a love story that lasts decades.

A host of characters – including a one-eyed Cyclops, Circe the Sexy Sorceress and the terrifying Sea God Poseidon – will conjure up a mighty storm and keep you on the edge of your seat.

A compact piece of theatre magic, designed for even the smallest venues, with more Greek stuff than you can shake a stick at!

“Utterly compelling & laugh-out-loud funny”

“Inspired, epic lunacy! A proper treat for all”

The Odyssey, directed by Simon Harvey, made its first appearance with a short tour in 2017. Now rewritten and reworked with even more Greek stuff than you can shake a stick at! Performed by veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh Dave Mynne.


Suitable for adults and older children (12+)
