CURRENT PRODUCTION

The Odyssey

Written by Homer, Adapted by Robert Pike

The Gods have not marked your house for an unsung future.

 

We Happy Few takes on a pillar of Western Storytelling tradition, Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey. Despite a hard-won and decisive victory in the Trojan war, Greek hero Odysseus has not returned to his queen Penelope and their son Telemachus, leaving them at the mercy of a gaggle of lusty suitors. Goddess Athena intercedes to reunite the family as they fight through cyclops, sea storms, witches, and murder plots. Presented with movement, puppetry, mad-cap fun, and original songs and music, join We Happy Few on this epic quest back home.

Appropriate for all ages.  Running time is approximately ninety minutes with no intermission.
