The personal and the political collide in Tim Price’s beautiful and heartfelt re-telling of the 1984 Miners’ Strike, inspired by Homer’s Odyssey.

“So. Man of many turns. Tell us your story. From the beginning.”

As the strike begins miner John O’Donnell finds himself thrust into a fight for survival, taking him far from South Wales. Meanwhile, at home, his wife Penny goes on her own epic personal journey whilst striving to support her community. When they are finally reunited, they find that their very different journeys have transformed their lives forever.

Set against the backdrop of one of the most turbulent periods in our recent history, Odyssey ’84 promises a spectacular theatre experience. This major new play tells of the adventures our ideals take us on.

The performances from 11 to 14 October will be Pay What You Want. They will go on sale in mid 2024.

BSL interpretation by Tony Evans (17 October, 7.30pm and 24 October, 7.30pm).
