Overview

Following the start of the new year, the company will introduce audiences to Marcus Gardley’s black odyssey, in its East Coast premiere. The play is an epic and glorious reimagining of Homer’s classic poem that combines Greek mythology and African-American history of the last fifty years. Kent Nash will be directing this production and will feature Joe Wilson, Jr. The two last worked together on the wildly successful 2017 production of The Mountaintop.
