Loopshop 6: Do not make the gods angry (a.k.a. The Odyssey, an adaptation)
Next up is The Odyssey, an adaptation:
An excerpt from a longer work in development, Strangeloop company members Michael Wagman and Carrie Campana translate Homer’s The Odyssey from epic poem to epic play told with a chorus of voices and bodies. Written by Wagman and directed by Campana, The Odyssey stars Ryan Santa, Ryan Johnson, Miona Lee, Tim Lee, Holly Claire Millican and Beau Buccilli.
Loopshop is Chicago-based Strangeloop Theatre's annual short play and new works series. This year's production features a mix of short, original plays and scenes from full scripts in development — all from local playwrights.
Performances for Loopshop 6 will be at 8 p.m. on Monday, July 29, and Tuesday, July 30, 2013, at Chemically Imbalanced Comedy Theatre, 1422 West Irving Park Road, Chicago. Tickets for the show are $10.
