Derek Walcott’s “Omeros” returns to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

omeros-globe-2015

Omeros, Derek Walcott’s adaptation of his Nobel Prize-winning epic poem, returns to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare’s Globe. The theater is located at 21 New Globe Walk (Bankside) London. The play takes place from October 26 to 31, 2015.

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 and performed by Joseph Marcell and Joan Iyiola.

Directed by Bill Buckhurst; Music by Tayo Akinbode; Cast by Joan Iyiola and Joseph Marcell
