Date: Wednesday 30th August 2017
Time: 20:30

The Odyssey (Greek stuff!)

Based (very loosely!) on the epic poem by Homer.

"Cyclops! A hulk of flesh, Ship tall. Arms reaching to his knees. Mouth - a gaping universe. And in the middle of his foolish forehead One Single Eye Mwah-ha-ha. . .!"

From the makers of ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘Dracula’ comes a tale more exciting than excitement itself: The Odyssey.

The journey of all journeys.
To Hell. And back again.
Gods, Monsters, Sirens, Derring-Dos and Derring-Donts!
A love story that lasts decades.

It’s Greek stuff... with all the boring bits removed!

A host of exciting (and daft) characters - including a one-eyed Cyclops, a six-headed monster and the terrifying Sea God Poseidon - will conjure up a mighty storm and keep you on the edge of your seat.

If ever a show was designed for the smallest venues, this is it; a compact piece of theatre magic

Directed by Simon Harvey
Performed by David Mynne
Devised and written by the company
Poetry by
Anna Maria Murphy

Reviews of Dracula:

"Stoker’s gothic novel has been perfectly pared down and Mynne’s performance is exquisite: a masterclass in the telling of tales, it needs to be seen." Arts End of Nowhere

"Wildly eccentric, totally bonkers and saucily scary, David Mynne’s magnificent one-man performance is flawless." Radio St Austell Bay
