The Odyssey on Angel Island State Park
- Spring 2012
- Original poem by Homer, translated by Robert Fagles, adapted for performance by We Players
- Directed by Ava Roy
“You won’t see a play this summer with better views or loftier ambitions”
We Players facilitates an intimate experience of Angel Island and its diverse histories through this all-day, island-wide performance adventure. Carefully crafted staging, interactive installations, and diverse pathways through the space make this performance a provocative and truly memorable experience. Equipped with a map, time card, and survival ‘kit bag‘ the audience walks for miles, encountering monsters, nymphs, gods and mortals, as they journey to the Kingdom of the Dead, climb Mount Olympus, and return to their native land at last. Feasts, libations, storms, and five star views across the bay make this a journey to remember.
Go forward, Hero
