Lisa Peterson's adaptation of "The Odyssey" brings new life to this ancient epic. Four young women trapped in the limbo of a refugee camp retell Odysseus' adventures as they struggle with their own search for a home. A production based on the revelatory new translation by Emily Wilson, its bold theatricality brings new humor and grace to a story we all think we know. The Acting Company is the only professional theater principally dedicated to the development of young classical actors. Founded in 1972 by John Houseman and Margot Harley from the first graduating class of the Drama Division of The Juilliard School, The Company has launched the careers of some 400 actors, including Kevin Kline, Patti LuPone, David Schramm, Keith David, Rainn Wilson, Lorraine Touissaint, Frances Conroy, Harriet Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Hamish Linklater, Jesse L. Martin, and Roslyn Ruff, while bringing high quality professional theater to hundreds of communities from coast to coast.
