Ulysses Lincoln, a Gulf War veteran lost at sea and presumed dead, fights to find his way back home to his wife and son. The meddlesome Gods, Great Grand Daddy Deus and Great Grand Paw Sidin have other plans in mind as they battle for control of Ulysses’ fate. Presented in October 2017 in the God’s Closet Reading Series by The Front Porch Arts Collective, black odyssey melds together Greek mythology, African-American oral history and music in this visionary new take on Homer’s classic tale.
A co-production by The Front Porch Arts Collective & Underground Railway Theater.
