Three acting troupes rehearse the same classical passion play at three key moments in history in Passion Play, a clever and highly original comedy-drama from Tony Award-winner and Pulitzer Prize-nominee Sarah Ruhl (In the Next Room, or the vibrator play). Ruhl has been hailed as "one of the brightest new talents to emerge in the theater" by The New York Times, and in Passion Play she weaves a funny and lusty tale of community spirit, individual morality and global politics set in three vastly different historical periods: Queen Elizabeth's England, Hitler's Germany and Reagan's America.

The Odyssey Theatre Ensemble's mission remains firm: the creation of new work, the revitalization and re-exploration of classical material, consistent experimentation with the most current developments at the forefront of the "state of the art" in the international theatre world, ongoing investigation of the "process" of creating theatre, and continuing development of new acting, directing, and writing talent via the Actor's Laboratory, Play Development Program, and Emerging Directors Plan. Ultimately, the institution moves toward the creation of a larger International Experimental Theatre Center, facilitating the crosspollination of artists from different countries, cultures and disciplines, and the exposure of this collaborative work to the Southern California audience.
