A ridiculously good cast including Sir Ian McKellen, Andrew Scott, Stanley Tucci, Miranda Richardson and many, many more has been announced for 'The Odyssey', the climactic event to the theatre's Greeks season. Directed by Rupert Goold and Robert Icke they will, in a very literal sense, be reading Homer's epic poem about the voyages of Odysseus from start to end. If you'd like to try and see it live, the readings will be taking place at the following locations on Thursday Nov 12 – it's first come first served to get a seat.
