Odysseus D.O.A.

February 23 – March 4, 2012

By Stephen Svoboda
Regional Premiere
Nafe Katter Theatre

Experience the Odyssey re-imagined: a magical place where the blind see, the sick love and drag queens become goddesses. As the final stages of his disease bend his vivid imagination, Elliot becomes the legendary hero Odysseus determined to bring his crew-his fellow patients on the AIDS ward-home despite all the obstacles the gods throw in his way. This wise, heartfelt drama charts one man's heroic quest for Kleos - Glory, to live a life worthy of being remembered. Playwright Stephen Svoboda will direct his work in its regional premiere. Critic Martin Denton calls this a "majestic play… poetic, surreal and wonderfully humorous."
