'The Odyssey' is based on the adaptation of Homer’s classic ancient Greek poem by Nobel prize-winner Derek Walcott. The play is quick moving, and glides seamlessly between colloquial speech and poetic verse, according to Dzuiblinski. While primarily set in ancient Greece, Walcott’s version of 'The Odyssey' has scenes that are framed in a more contemporary manner.
