David Mynne - The Odyssey.
Veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh.
“Utterly compelling & laugh-out-loud funny”
“Inspired, epic lunacy! A proper treat for all”
“This is Play School for grown ups”
From the company that brought you ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Great Expectations’, ‘Dracula’ and ‘Canterbury Tales’ comes a one-man performance of ‘The Odyssey’; a tale more exciting than excitement itself. Based (very loosely!) on the epic poem by Homer, The Odyssey is the journey of all journeys…
To Hell and back again. Gods and Monsters. A love story that lasts decades.
This is proper Greek stuff (Sex! Swords! Sandals!) with all the boring bits removed!
A host of characters – including a one-eyed Cyclops, Circe the Sexy Sorceress and the terrifying Sea God Poseidon – will conjure up a mighty storm and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Beware the dreaded Siren of the Sea…
Taste my fishy kisses
Delicious, fishy kisses
They taste of trout
Wsssith my pilchardy pout
Taste my fishy kisses!
