The Search for Odysseus
Cuddington Youth Drama’s most recent production was The Search for Odysseus, on 12th and 13th March 2011.
The play is written by Charles Way and tells the story of the teenage boy Telemachus searching for his lost father. It is based on Homer’s epic journey poem The Odyssey, in which Odysseus is forced by an angry God to take a long route home after the Trojan War. The goddess Athena tricks Telemachus into embarking on a challenging voyage that brings him face to face with his father’s adversaries, from a dangerously alluring goddess to an angry Cyclops; through a raging whirlpool to the Underworld and home again.
The play was enhanced by original music specially composed for this production by our musical director Gary Hawkins. The production was set in the round, with all the atmosphere of a Greek play.
More photos of the production are displayed on the CYD website.
New Peter Pan Photos
Until now, most of the photos of Peter Pan on the CYD website were of Cast B. Happily, we have now put this right thanks to a terrific set of photos of Cast A from Simon Taylor.
