The Telemachy

The Telemachy

The Telemachy is a modern-day retelling of the first four books of Homer's epic poem, the Odyssey. They are named so because – just as the Odyssey tells the story of Odysseus – they tell the story of Odysseus' son Telemachus as he journeys from home for the first time in search of news about his missing father.

The travelling poet swaggers to town with a case full of ancient stories from his journeys across the world. We know he’s on his way. We’re not sure wh ere he’s coming from. He’s bringing a famous story about you, me, all of us. Who is the spokesman for our generation? Your enigmatic host delves into the mythologies of Odysseus, the original rock'n'roll absent father, through the eyes of his brooding son Telemachus. How can he compete with the legacy of his father when the world’s so different now? What does it mean to become a man?
