Join Shakespeare Dallas for their 52nd season of Shakespeare in the Park! This season they’re bringing you The Odyssey by Mary Zimmerman adapted from the translation of “The Odyssey” by Robert Fitzgerald and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night


The Odyssey-This dramatic adaptation of Homer's myth begins with a modern young woman who is struggling to understand Robert Fitzgerald's translation of The Odyssey. A classical muse appears, and the young woman becomes the goddess Athena--a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home. With her trademark irreverent and witty twist on classic works, Zimmerman brings to life the story of Odysseus's ten-year journey, depicting his encounters with characters such as Circe, the Cyclops, Poseidon, Calypso, the Sirens, and others. 

Twelfth Night- Viola and her twin brother, Sebastian have been shipwrecked; each believes the other to have drowned. Viola disguises herself as a young man, and under the name Cesario, gets a job as a servant for the Duke, Orsino.
