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.

Another strange and wonderful production from the Hypocrites! Emotional, frequently unsettling, and expertly performed. The progression through the 3 performance spaces was seamless and artistic for the performers and didn't feel like a big production moving the audience to new seating. Great show, highly recommended!
