At the conclusion of the Trojan War, Odysseus embarks on a 10-year journey to his home in Ithaca, hoping to reunite with his wife and son, Penelope and Telemachus, and reclaim his throne. Along the way he battles mystical creatures and faces the wrath of the gods, while at home Penelope and Telemachus fend off suitors who seek to replace Odysseus as king. Renowned director and playwright Mary Zimmerman transformed the Greek epic of Odysseus and his journey home into a captivating play, condensing the approximately 12,000 lines of the original poem into an engaging adventure. Carlo Feliciani Ojeda, a senior in the School of Drama’s directing program, set out to make The Odyssey a theatrical experience, drawing on his heritage as an immigrant from Venezuela.
