In a new twist on the classic epic myth, Seattle playwright Jennifer Dice reweaves the ancient tale of Ithakan war hero Odysseus on his trek home to his wife Penelope following the legendary battle of the Trojan War.

ABOUT THE ODYSSEY OF HOMER, or ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER

Itís an epic journey that takes Odysseus and his crew over 30 years to complete. Along the way he is beset by a boatload of troubles - a giant bloodthirsty Cyclops, a ravenous seven-headed Hydra, a legion of beautiful but deadly Sirens, and the evil sorceress Circe. In this new
version of the classic story, Seattle Playwright Jennifer Dice has crafted a thoughtful but light-hearted comedy that takes a critical look at bullying leaders while exploring the merits of perseverance, teamwork and cooperation. Originally commissioned by the innovative Greenwood Elementary Drama Program, THE ODYSSEY OF HOMER, or ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER is certain to be another breakthrough of theatrical exploration for SPTís Youth Program.
