Asolo Rep on Tour: LOOKING FOR ITHACA

 
2022 Broadway on the Lake - May 2022

Arts & Cultural Events/Community Events/Waterside Place

Saturday, October 22nd @ 6:00PM - 7:00PM

Join us at the Plaza at Waterside Place for an adventure of universal proportions in this 45-minute adaptation of Homer’s The Odyssey, presented by Asolo Rep and produced by the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training. 

LOOKING FOR ITHACA: AN ODYSSEY is an imaginative retelling of the classic journey of a family that has been fractured by war and unseen forces. The story is told through the eyes of a family fighting their way back to one another: Odysseus, a father whose yearning for his wife and child drives him to traverse the dangers hidden in the sea; Penelope, a mother protecting what’s left of her home and her family; and Telemachus, a son embarking on an Odyssey of his own, looking to fill the shoes of an unknown father. They may return home, but that isn’t where their journey ends.
