The Odyssey


Odyssey, the great hero of the Trojan War, has not returned to his home in Ithaca, months after the war has ended. It seems that he forgot to thank Poseidon, god of the sea, and now Poseidon is putting all kinds of obstacles in his way. He has to deal with a Cyclops, beautiful sirens, a 3 headed monster, overly emotional demigod enchantresses, holy cows, storms, a whirlpool-he even makes a trip to Hades! Athena and Hermes are a big help, but will he ever get home to Ithaca where his beloved family is dealing with more and more aggressive suitors. Preview script.
