Living Spit's Odyssey

About

Captivating singer Kate Dimbleby joins Bristol's favourite comedy theatre troupe Living Spit to re-imagine Homer's classic work.

The Odyssey, one of the supreme works of western literature, tells of Odysseus' 10-year journey home to Ithaca from the Trojan War, overcoming some of Greek mythology's greatest monsters, misfortunes and temptations. While all Greece presumed him dead, Penelope, his faithful wife, fended off 100 drunken suitors who besieged their home. 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 brand new and 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 painful puns a-plenty! Let's just hope they get on…

Lead reviews:
"This ribald reworking is a beguiling rib-tickler...the sense of mischief and sheer silliness are difficult to resist" (The Times on Living Spit's Frankenstein)
"Stunning vocal virtuosity…This is an artist absolutely at the top of her game (BBC Radio 6 Music on Kate Dimbleby)"
