“laced... with blood soaked rock ‘n’ roll” 
★★★★ Evening Standard 

The King Odysseus (Christopher Tandy), separated from his family by ten years of brutal war, faces another ten-year struggle to return home, as a reckless God (Christopher Akrill) drags him on an epic journey across oceans to strange lands and the darkness beyond. Immortal beauties, shape shifters, monsters and sorcerers both guide and torment the king as he hurtles towards a savage and desperate reunion with his Queen.

The cast and creative team that brought you the multi-award winning Dracula (2013) present a vision of a broken world, from faded New York pageants to islands of fantasy; brutal seas, battlefields and a gateway to Hades. Set to music spanning Mozart to Mark Lanegan, Sacred Arias to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, plus an original score, this Odyssey is of now - contemporary horror and fantasy splintering from ancient myth. The themes universal: how we face our mortality and the driving force of the Gods within us.
