An Odyssey, World Premiere. Adapted by Jay Ball. Directed by Jed Harris. August 13 - September 5, 2021

Schenley Park’s Ice Skating Rink offers an end-of-summer site to kick off the 30th Anniversary Season. An Odyssey explores what keeps us coming back to ancient tales of a war and of a journey home. What defines heroism? Author Jay Ball finds answers by emphasizing female characters who were mere footnotes in the original. And he also finds ample humor.

Lucy Kirkwood’s award-winning play follows the young photojournalist who captured an image that arrested the world: a protester facing down four tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Beginning in this moment past, the play fast forwards to our times, examining capitalism and culture, journalism and censorship.

Will Arbery writes a play set near, but not quite in Plano, Texas. Its heroines are three sisters, echoing Chekhov’s, and the men who occupy all too much of the oxygen-rich atmosphere around them in astroturf-lined suburbia. This is a comedy, a dark one, with flashes of absurdity that ring true. A domestic drama, a comedy, and a dark look at America all at the same time.

Site Tour

We’ve called this a backstage tour, but there are times when we don’t have a stage, let alone a “backstage.” Instead, let’s call this an intimate trip through the space we’re currently calling home; a guided tour through the site-specific production of your choice, a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration and crazy challenges of the plays.
