The Odyssey

Department of Theatre
Babcock Theatre

By Homer
Adapted and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman
Adapted from the translation of The Odyssey by Robert Fitzgerald
Directed by Alexandra Harbold
Originally Produced by The Goodman Theatre, Chicago, Illinois of September 17, 1999

The Trojan War is over, but Odysseus and his men have not returned. Back home, his wife Penelope, plagued by suitors, promises to remarry as soon as she finishes her father-in-law’s shroud—which she unravels every night. Meanwhile, Odysseus is stranded on islands, caught in storms, trapped by a Cyclops and a sorceress, and impeded by other monsters and gods. Will he ever make it home to his wife and fatherless son?

This adaptation by Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphosis, Guys and Dolls, The White Snake) weaves her own spell on Homer’s classic tale of adventure, trials, and steadfast love.

Due to the intimate nature of our venue, late seating is not available for this production.
