A youth theatre from Chester is planning a long and tortuous journey this weekend.
Jigsaw Music Theatre, the younger arm of Theatre in the Quarter, is in the final preparations of its production, The Strange Adventures of Odysseus.
The play will be performed at Chester Blue Coat CE Primary School on Friday and Saturday.
Artistic director Matt Baker said: “It never fails to impress me how creative these young people can be.
“We began the academic year with dance and physical theatre workshops with artists from Cheshire Dance and Off The Ground Theatre.
“Together with our own in-house music and drama sessions the children were prepared to find exciting ways to retell this adventure.”
Director Will Wood said: “I have always been fascinated by the story of Odysseus and I can think of no better group of young people to attempt a recreation of the adventure with such theatrical creativity.”
The shows are at 7.30pm on Friday and Saturday, with an additional matinée performance at 2.30pm on Saturday. Tickets are available at the door or by calling 07747 110933.
