One of literature's oldest figures -- the returning solider -- gets a contemporary twist in Ithaka. In this Midwest premiere of the recently commissioned play from Andrea Stolowitz, the soldier in question is both a Marine officer and a woman, Captain Elaine Edwards. Fresh off her latest Afghanistan tour, Edwards has trouble adjusting to life back at home. After a blowup with her husband, she skips town and undertakes an Odyssean journey, battling her monsters and struggling to find a path to her true "home" once more. The Portland-based Stolowitz, winner of the 2013 Oregon Book Award for Antarktikos and the Fowler/Levin Prize for this play, grounds her latest work in interviews with veterans and their families, enhancing the play's realism and its dramatic impact.

Please be aware that this is a unique theatrical production where standing is part of the experience. There will be times when the audience might sit, but be prepared to stand for the 60-minute duration of the show.
