The Odyssey in 60 Minutes is a modern interpretation of the classic ancient Greek tale. The story follows Odysseus on his turbulent journey back to his family, his wife fighting of suitors, and his son searching for his lost father; with the gods cavorting along on the side. Written and directed by Mick Zijdel, we attempt to show the audience this tale with plenty of music, costume changes and laughs along the way.
