The Odyssey

The Pantaloons presents


Friday 15th March

Sing, O Muse, of the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons and their hilarious new verse adaptation of the most epic journey of all time.

Stranded war hero Odysseus must struggle against the odds to get home to his wife; but can he battle his way through grumpy gods, naughty nymphs, monocular monsters and over a hundred sleazy suitors? All whilst wearing an Ancient Greek robe that looks suspiciously like a bedsheet?

Or will he – and The Pantaloons – remain all at sea…?

The Pantaloons draw from a wide variety of popular theatre traditions, from commedia dell’arte and pantomime to stand-up comedy and silent movies, to bring a vital sense of “play” back to classical performance and recapture the riotous energy of the clown. Tapping into this rich vein of anarchic humour reminds us that we are all simply participants in a game of make-believe.
