World Premiere. This modern take on The Odyssey paints a chilling portrait of the family the warrior leaves behind. Penelope and her teenage son Telemachus struggle to maintain control on Ithaca while waiting for Odysseus to return. As Penelope navigates the political waters of countless suitors, Telemachus chafes against both the bombardment of potential usurpers and his father's legacy. With pressure for a successor mounting, they battle two outsiders for control over the island, with a shocking ending that can't be found in Homer's saga. Recommended for age 17 and above, contains brief nudity and adult situations.
