The Odyssey

Thursday 16th June – 7.30pm

Performed by veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh, David Mynne, at Yeo Valley Organic Garden, courtesy of Sarah and Tim Mead.

Greek stuff (Sex! Swords! Sandals!) with all the boring bits removed! 

To Hell and back again. Gods and Monsters. And a love story that lasts decades.

A host of characters – including a one-eyed Cyclops, Circe the Sexy Sorceress and the terrifying Sea God Poseidon – will conjure up a mighty storm and keep you on the edge of your seat.

A compact piece of theatre magic, designed for even the smallest venues, with more Greek stuff than you can shake a stick at!

“Utterly compelling & laugh-out-loud funny”

“Inspired, epic lunacy! A proper treat for all”
