Caribbean writer Derek Walcott has adapted his Nobel Prize-winning epic poem Omeros for performance in the unique candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The poem spans both time and continents, following the journey of a present-day Odysseus and a beautiful house servant Helen, who incites her own Trojan War.
The narrative is rooted on the island of Saint Lucia, Walcott’s home, and will be underscored by live music to evoke the flavour of the Caribbean.
Guardian Extra members can buy the best available seats for £30 (usually £45). The offer is valid for four performances only: 31 May, 1 June, 7 June or 9 June.
