Student Matinee Series

The Odyssey


Recommended for grades 6-12

Adapted and directed by Lisa Peterson
Translated by Emily Wilson

What will you do to go home again? Lisa Peterson’s adaptation of The Odyssey brings new life to this ancient epic. Four young women trapped in the limbo of a refugee camp retell Odysseus’ adventures as they struggle with their own search for a home. A production based on the revelatory new translation by Emily Wilson, its bold theatricality brings new humor and grace to a story we all think we know.

With past alumni like Kevin Kline, Patti LuPone, Jeffrey Wright, and many more, The Acting Company returns after many years for this new production.

Evening performance on sale soon.
