Don’t miss The Oddysey (Greek Stuff) at The Plough on Wednesday, April 19

Sexy Sirens, a six-headed monster, Gods and the one-eyed Cyclops are all deftly brought to life in a hilarious new show based - loosely - on Homer's epic poem (and we don't mean Simpson).

Kneehigh Theatre and its founder member Dave Mynne present The Oddysey at The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington on Wednesday, April 19.

Fresh from playing Grandad in Kneehigh's Fup at Heligan's Asylum last summer, Dave is now back on the road with his latest one-man show - and it's all Greek to him.

Apparently before the days of sat nav it could take as long as 10 years to get home, so Dave brings his own epic storytelling talents to put a new spin on The Odyssey.

Odysseus is the legendary Greek king of Ithaca and the hero of our story, which recounts his decade-long struggle to return home after the Trojan War.

During his journey, he battles mystical creatures and faces the wrath of the gods. Meanwhile his wife, Penelope, and his son, Telemachus, stave off suitors (for 10 years) vying for Penelope's hand and Ithaca's throne.

The Odyssey ends as Odysseus returns home, wins a contest to prove his identity, slaughters the suitors (as you would), and retakes the throne.

As with his other shows, Dave enlists Simon Harvey to direct and, this time, enlists fellow Kneehigh colleague Anna Maria-Murphy (co-writer of Trystan and Yseult), for added poetic licence.

The show starts at 8pm and is suitable for ages 12-plus.
