The travelling poet swaggers into London with a case full of ancient stories. Your enigmatic host delves into the mythologies of Odysseus, the original absent father, through the eyes of his son, a brooding Telemachus. An intimate solo show utilising poetry, humour and a rock’n’roll attitude, and inspired by the second-oldest extant work of Western literature, Homer's Odyssey, The Telemachy refocuses epic storytelling away from both the fame and infamy of Odysseus to his son – the next generation. The poem has endured for thousands of years, and its intrinsic relationship with our past, present and future lives on. In this retelling we ask, has anything really changed since the 8th century BC? Who is the voice of our generation? Who speaks for us?
