After sold-out success with its outdoor show “The Current War,” Quantum Theatre is keeping up the creative momentum.
Quantum’s 30th anniversary season returns to shows that were rescheduled due to the pandemic and one new play announced for April 2022 (quantumtheatre.com).
The first one is a world premiere of “An Odyssey.” Adapted by Jay Ball, the play explores what defines heroism through the female characters of Homer’s epic, “The Odyssey,” sprinkling humor throughout the mythic journey. In true Quantum fashion, “An Odyssey” is slated to be performed at the Schenley Park ice skating rink near the park’s Oval Sportsplex on Aug. 13 through Sept. 5. The play has an immersive design and may require 1,000 feet of rope, said Stewart Urist, Quantum’s executive director.
