About this show

The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, in association with Red House Arts Center, presents a limited engagement off-Broadway run of Stephen Svoboda's Odysseus DOA (Died of AIDS). In this audaciously comedic look at death in the age of AIDS, experience the Odyssey re-imagined: a magical place where the blind see, the sick love and drag queens become goddesses... Elliot has come to the hospital to die. Amongst a group of patients with advanced AIDS, his mind deteriorates, leaving fantasy and anxiety to tango. His magical and humorous story is blended with Homer's Odyssey, the story of a man determined to return home despite all the obstacles the gods dish out along the way. Elliot has become the legendary Greek hero Odysseus.
