Bungsu and the Big Snake

By Lib Spry
Directed by Diana Fajrajsl

Based on a scenario by Lib Spry and material created collaboratively by the ensemble.

“Girouard’s lovable, spunky Bungsu is a special delight, but the whole cast is outstanding, achieving acting magic even while wearing masks (an Odyssey regular feature). While the masks add to the fairytale enchantment, they prevent the actors from relying on full facial expressions. Not an easy task, but they pull it off without exception.”
Jennifer Hartley, Ottawa XPress

“…the play is[…]alive with magic and fun. In typical Odyssey fashion, ornate costumes, music and a commedia dell’arte flair give the show vibrant life.”
—Kim Mannix Vermette, Metro

“The stage is greatly enlivened by Alix Sideris, an Odyssey regular, as the Monkey Goddess. Sideris keeps the audience in stitches with her hilarious performance of a goddess trapped inside a monkey’s body.”
—Paul Gessell, The Ottawa Citizen
