TO mark 2014’s First World War centenary, The Odyssey, one of literature’s oldest stories, is being brought to life through live music and emotive storytelling.

Derby Theatre is presenting the new version of Homer’s The Odyssey from Friday, February 14 until Saturday, March 1, and tickets cost £10 to £25.

The play will be directed by Derby Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sarah Brigham, who also directed Kes for the theatre last year.

Ms Brigham said: “The modern adaptation of this classic story, about a soldier who returns home from war and who has to piece his life back together, has a modern day feel, resonance and relevance through its language and themes.

“It is a timeless piece which the brilliant ensemble of actors will deliver with a powerful and emotional punch against a soaring, live musical score.”
