Chekhov meets Fellini in this enchanting tragicomedy brimming with wit, charm and magic by one of Poland's most distinguished modern playwrights. Set in Poland circa 1890, Tadeusz Rózewicz's White Marriage is a surreal and erotic coming-of-age fairy tale that follows two young girls' maturation into womanhood. With the adult world swirling around sisters Bianca and Pauline, the two respond in wildly different ways to the strange discoveries they are making about the mysterious business of sex. This magic-filled "tragic farce" by one of Poland's greatest contemporary writers was a hit for the Odyssey 35 years ago. Learn More

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.
