Living Spit’s Odyssey

Date: Monday, Nov 11 - Saturday, Nov 16
Venue: Tobacco Factory Theatres

Captivating singer Kate Dimbleby joins Bristol’s favourite comedy theatre troupe Living Spit to reimagine Homer’s classic work.

The Odyssey, one of the supreme works of western literature, tells of Odysseus’ 10-year journey home from the Trojan War, overcoming some of Greek mythology’s greatest challenges. All Greece presumed him dead while Penelope, his faithful wife, fended off countless drunken suitors. The story’s scope and beauty have entranced mankind for nearly three thousand years.

Now Kate Dimbleby, the internationally renowned, stupefyingly talented singer and raconteur, joins Living Spit, a pair of scruffy, puerile, knockabout chancers from a small seaside town just south of Bristol, to create a highly original retelling of this story of redemption, isolation and a desperate yearning for love.

Expect great music and top-notch comedy married together with playful panache, pathos and puns! Let’s just hope they get on…

Nov 11-16pm, 7.30pm plus Sat 2.30pm, from £12. AGes 12+. For more info, visit www.tobaccofactorytheatres.com/shows/living-spits-odyssey
