Galloway, N.J. – After a long hiatus, the famous Dinner & Show Series at Stockton University’s Performing Arts Center is back with a modern and feminist retelling of a classic story – Lisa Peterson’s adaption of “The Odyssey” by the Acting Company is set to be on the mainstage at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10.
Following a buffet-style meal in the Stockton Art Gallery, patrons will watch four young women trapped in the limbo of a refugee camp retell Odysseus’ adventures as they struggle with their own search for a home.
The production is based on a 2017 translation by University of Pennsylvania professor Emily Wilson, who became the first woman to publish a translation of Homer’s most famous work into English.
Content warning: Discussion of mature content (war, murder and assault). No gunshots, no haze, no nudity/graphic sexuality, and no profanity.
