What is The Odyssey about?

If you’ve ever been late home from a night out, you may empathise with Odysseus… The Odyssey is a classical poem about homecoming, but after twenty years away, can you possibly return as the same person who left?

Husband and wife, Odysseus and Penelope, recount the last twenty years of their lives to one another in an attempt to recognise each other again. Odysseus has spent a decade at war and the following 10 years after that floating from island to island, making love to the women who live there. Meanwhile, Penelope has spent twenty years raising their child alone on Ithaca, with the last decade surrounded by suitors who vie after Odysseus crown, and her hand in marriage. To put off the unwelcome advances, Penelope has been weaving a shroud for her father-in-law, only to unpick it again each night, with the promise that she will remarry when the shroud is finished.

After so long apart, can the separated couple find one another again, and, more importantly, do they want to?
