The Odyssey: A Play by Mary Zimmerman

7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, July 24-28, 2013

LCC Outdoor Amphitheatre (Free)

Directed by Deborah Keller

This dramatic adaptation of Homer's myth begins with a modern young woman who is struggling to understand Robert Fitzgerald's translation of The Odyssey. A classical muse appears, and the young woman becomes the goddess Athena--a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home. With her trademark irreverent and witty twist on classic works, Zimmerman brings to life the story of Odysseus's ten-year journey, depicting his encounters with characters such as Circe, the Cyclops, Poseidon, Calypso, the Sirens, and others. Presented by LCC's 2nd Semester Theatre Studio class
