Homeward Bound is a rollicking musical based on The Odyssey by Homer. It tells the parallel stories of history's most resourceful couple, Odysseus and Penelope. In his quest to return home after the Trojan War, the wily Odysseus surmounts challenges on land and sea -- and even ventures down into the underworld. Meanwhile, shrewd Penelope must outmaneuver the scions of the Ithacan patriarchy to preserve her position, her independence, and her home.
This fast-moving show also features a runaway prince, lovely enchantresses, scheming suitors, gourmet cannibals, vengeful ghosts, a dangerous giant, a deadly whirlpool, and a shipwreck! Join us for a tale that has enthralled human beings for 2800 years: An epic adventure, a domestic comedy, and an enduring love story.
