What lengths would you go to get home? In this Philadelphia premiere by The Acting Company, two-time OBIE Award-winning director Lisa Peterson brings new life to Homer’s homecoming epic, The Odyssey. Four young women, trapped in the limbo of a refugee camp, retell Odysseus' adventures as they struggle with their own search for a home. Based on the revelatory translation by Penn professor and MacArthur Fellow Emily Wilson, which was named to The New York Times’ top 100 notable books list for 2018, this bold adaptation brings fresh humor and grace to a story we all think we know.
