Telemachus’ father left long ago to fight a war. He doesn’t remember him. Now the man of the house, he must step up to defend his father’s legacy and protect his mother from the suitors that lounge around the court.

Meanwhile, the great Odysseus has been trapped by the goddess Kalypso for ten long years. Lost in his memories of past glories he longs to return home.

This timeless Greek myth has been reinvented by extraordinary playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker (Our Country’s Good, Three Birds Alighting on a Field) to create a modern, rich and powerful new work about a son searching for his father and a father searching for himself that explores masculinity and the effects of war.

Cast includes: Ben Adams, Charlotte De Bruyne, Ginny Halder, Jeffery Kissoon, Guy Rhys and Theo Solomon.
