The Odyssey: Missing Presumed Dead 

On Tuesday 3rd November Sixth Form Classical Civilisation students went to see a performance of The Odyssey: Missing Presumed Dead at the Sam Wanamaker playhouse in London. 

The Sam Wanamaker playhouse, a replica of an indoor 17th century theatre, lit by candlelight and next to Shakespeare's Globe was a fantastic setting for the evening.

The performance was an exciting retelling of this classic story with mythological characters, witches, flesh-eating armies interwoven with a more modern tale of a diplomatic mission to the Football World Cup ending in social media crisis. It certainly gave students something to think about!
