Aquila Theatre in Homer’s The Odyssey — Saturday, February 1, 2020, 8 p.m. Greek gods, monsters and adventure abound in Homer’s epic poem of antiquity. Follow hero Odysseus on his travels and tribulations — from encounters with sea monsters and whirlpools to cyclopes, island captivity and angry suitors — as he embarks on a quest to return home to his wife and son. When it comes to classical Greek dramas, The New York Times writes, “there are few [theatre companies] that can mount productions with the iconoclastic and high-voltage energy of Aquila Theatre Company.” Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020 at 8 p.m. at the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets: Regular $40; Student $35; Child $20; Student Rush day-of-show (with valid I.D.) $10. Box office: 828-257-4530 or worthamarts.org.
