Circe and Ulysses
by Darcy Cleaver
directed by Mitchell Martin
performed by the Walden Theatre Conservatory’s Young Company
The sorceress Circe has made a sport of reeling in seafarers and keeping them for her pets. But with the arrival of Ulysses—the hero of Homer’s Odyssey (and catch of the century?)—she finds herself ensnared by forces beyond her power in this world premiere play about love, fate, and fun in the sun written by a Louisville playwright.
Circe and Ulysses is a hilarious world premiere play by Louisville playwright Darcy Cleaver based on an episode in Homer’s Odyssey. The Young Company cast is drawn from the intermediate level actors of the Walden Theatre Conservatory, and the annual production brings classic stories to life in what is often the first chance for this cohort of rising artists to take on lead roles & gain experience as an ensemble.
