“The Odyyssey”

at the Village Hall

Thursday 9th March 2017 7:30pm

The Village Hall is again welcoming Village Ventures – the rural and community touring scheme for Nottinghamshire featuring high quality professional dance, drama and music from the best in national and international touring companies and performers.

Greek stuff... all the good bits with the boring stuff removed.

A hugely enjoyable solo show performed by an immensely talented actor (and first class fool). David Mynne delightfully brings Homer's epic poem to life, with great skill, outstanding comic timing, brilliant self-made sound effects and a handful of home-made props. A superb show; charming, funny, beautifully told with a host of exciting (and daft) characters - including a one-eyed Cyclops, a six-headed monster and the terrifying Sea God Poseidon - conjure up a mighty storm and keep you on the edge of your seat.

Based - very loosely - on the epic poem by Homer, this is a tale more exciting than excitement itself. 'The Odyssey' is Homer's great poetic account of Odysseus's decade-long attempt to return to his home island of Ithaca after the Trojan war, remembered for the hero's colourful, salt-caked adventures on the high seas: his encounters with witches, nymphs and cyclopes, his journey to the land of the dead, his shrewd and quick-tongued and fast-witted outsmarting of the terrors in his path.

“'A terrific blend of mesmerising acting and delightfully daft drama… mesmerising and joyful… faultless.' Derby Telegraph
