10/07 – 10/31 | Georgia Shakepeare Company Presents: The Odyssey: a Journey Home [a play adapted from Homer]

directed by Richard Garner
based on the work of Homer
adapted by Richard Garner and the GS Company

Sometimes the greatest adventure a person can undertake is the journey home. In our original adaptation of Homer’s epic, we’ll look at the challenges Odysseus overcomes in his quest to finally return home after ten years away fighting the Trojan Wars and see how they mirror the challenges our modern warriors go through to get home physically, psychologically, and emotionally. Home: A place worth fighting for and worth fighting to get back to.
