The Raven

By Carlo Gozzi
Translated and adapted by Lib Spry and Laurie Steven
Directed by Laurie Steven

“The production is lively and enjoyable[…]Laurie Steven’s direction is simple and subtle, and the cast is terrific[…]Times have changed, but Odyssey has endured, developing into one of the most exciting and imaginative theatre companies anywhere.”
—Tom McSorley,
CBC Radio 1

The Raven is a very syncretic performance. The adaptation has captured [the] shifts in theatrical style and levels of language. It unfolds on Art Penson’s very sophisticated set which opens to create imaginary spaces for Louise Lapointe’s exquisite fairy tale puppet creatures.”
—Alvina Ruprecht, CBC Radio 1

“The production is smooth, visually stunning and hugely entertaining. This production is a visual feast.”
—Barbara Crook, Ottawa Citizen
