Rabbit Theatre present
Based (very loosely!) on the epic poem by Homer
A hulk of flesh,
Ship tall. Arms reaching to his knees.
Mouth - a gaping universe.
And in the middle of his foolish forehead
Mwah-ha-ha. . ."
From the makers of ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘Dracula’ comes a tale more exciting than excitement itself: The ODYSSEY. The journey of all journeys. To Hell. And back again. Gods, Monsters, Sirens, Derring-Dos and Derring-Don'ts!
A love story that lasts decades. It’s Greek stuff... with all the boring bits removed!
A host of exciting (and daft) characters - including a one-eyed Cyclops, Circe the sexy sorceress and the terrifying Sea God Poseidon - will conjure up a mighty storm and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Suitable for adults and older children (12+)
Directed by Simon Harvey
Performed by David Mynne

There’s the passion. Carlos Santana’s guitar playing is instantly recognizable not just because of his tone or his trademark licks, but because of the emotion he puts into every note he plays. We’ve got that covered. There’s the good-time feel. Every track is a fiesta – come and dance, come and party. We’ve got that covered too. And every Oye Santana performance is a show, a visual feast of lights and action that will have you singing along, smiling along and dancing along from the first chink of a tambourine to the explosive finale.Close your eyes and you can’t tell the difference, said one promoter. The best tribute I’ve seen, said another.
It isn’t just authenticity and musical excellence they’re talking about. It’s the passion, the excitement.
With Oye Santana, every track is a fiesta, every performance is a show.
