HAMS does Homer . . . kinda
I bring great tidings, spread the word!
The next HAMS production has been sighted out on the wine-dark sea. We will be tackling Homer’s epic of all epics, The Odyssey.
What the . . .?!
Yes! An evening spent retelling the travels and trials of Odysseus during his ten years of wandering after the sack of Troy; eventually returning home to Ithaca and rescuing his wife Penelope from unwanted suiters.
But . . . this is HAMS
We will tell the story with gusto, pathos, silliness, song and audience participation; a rollicking romp told from the point of view of the epic’s supporting characters.
Have fun while we tell how Odysseus and his ever-shrinking crew overcome all the obstacles in their way, from Cyclops to cows. Odysseus is often shown in a far from heroic light and gives a particularly wooden performance. Think Everyman meets Ben Hur.
Performances will be on:
Wednesday March 21st 2018 – Evening
Friday March 23rd 2018 – Evening
Saturday March 24th 2018 – Evening
Put these dates in your diary.
Venue is East Hagbourne Village Hall.
