The Odyssey is Geoff Page's latest hilarious creation, taking it's audience through Homer's epic work of the same name. Audacious Productions are proud to have been involved in its development and world premiere in Cambridgeshire, and we loved taking it to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in summer 2014.

Having successfully defeated the pesky Trojans, all Odysseus wants to do is return home. But the capricious gods have other ideas, and soon our hero and his hapless crew find themselves beset by a hoard of vengeful islanders, a ravenous man-eating cyclops, a troupe of seductive sirens and one exceedingly boring old man…Will Odysseus overcome the many trials and tribulations he faces? Will he ever get back home to Ithaca and his beloved wife Penelope? Find out in this furiously frenetic romp through Homer’s classic tale of vengeance, adversity, courage and love.
