Age Recommendation

The Odyssey is recommended for ages 12 and above. An adaptation that honors the original Greek poem while adapting it to engage today’s theatre audiences, The Odyssey is appropriate for most audiences, though it contains some adult themes (war and sexual advances). As always, parents should consider their child’s comprehension and attention levels. Children under 5 are not admitted.
