Jobsite Theater presents Hot Nights for the War Wives of Ithaka
By Christopher Buehlman
Directed by Chris Holcom and Christen Petitt Hailey
Hot Nights for the War Wives of Ithaka is the story of the chaos that ensues when Aphrodite, goddess of love, and Pan, goat-legged god of shagging everything, descend on the island of Ithaka to seek revenge for the fall of Troy. Before the night is over, Pan is defiled by an old woman, the suitors to Penelope suffer an unutterable act of humiliation, and Odysseus, King of Ithaka, returns from the war to find that his child-bride has become a woman to be reckoned with.
An ingenious mix of highbrow and lowbrow, who could have guessed in school that Homer's Odyssey could be so funny? Fill your wine glass, nail down your livestock, and prepare to laugh really hard.
Penned by devious wordsmith Christopher Buehlman (known as Christophe the Insultor from his days touring the RenFair circuit), whose novel Those Across the River is currently gaining national attention.
Hot Nights for the War Wives of Ithaka features Ricky Cona, Slake Counts, Jason Evans, Michael McGreevy, Spencer Meyers, Andresia Mosely, Roz Potenza, Owen Robertson and Francine Wolf. For the official website, click here.
