Return: Military Wives, a windswept beach, and the Odyssey

Return is a new theatre piece which explores the experience of modern day military wives, linking to Penelope's experiences in Homer's Odyssey, and using this ancient text as a way in to up to date stories of waiting, longing, loving, and returning (or not).

RETURN - a short film

Back in March, on a windswept beach in the Vale of Glamorgan, Bread & Goose began an adventure into a new project called Return.

It's inspired by Homer's Odyssey, and we're interested in how the ancient tales match up to the modern experiences of warfare, journeying, and…

The Memory Store is a cabinet of curiosities built to accompany our touring theatre production Lost In The Neuron Forest.
