The Odyssey: Episode 5 - The Underworld archiveNo-one is lost for all time. Held captive by the nymph Calypso, Odysseus has all but given up hope of ever returning home. Back on Ithaca, her son Telemachus plots a rescue, and high above on Mount Olympus, the Gods convene to set her one final trial - a voyage to Hades, land of the dead. But high above on Mount Olympus, the Gods are convening to decide the fate of Odysseus, and if she should be allowed to return home to Ithaca. The Gods agree to release Odysseus, but first she must pass through Hades, the land of the dead, to finally reach home. To mark the fifth anniversary of Public Acts, The Odyssey is reimagined for today in an epic retelling with hundreds of community members across the country. All performances of The Odyssey: Episode 5 are audio-described, captioned and chilled.
