HCM CITY (VNS)  — The French Institute in Viet Nam, or IDECAF, will stage the play Ulysses Oi, Where are You Going? by Puzzle Group and Thang Long Company on June 14.

The play will recast the myth of Ulysses and present it as a mixture of songs and drama set in a modern Vietnamese context.

After 10 years away from home, Ulysses decides to return to Ithaca island to find his wife Penelope and their son Telemachus, whom he has never seen.

With help from friends and his people, Ulysses overcomes various challenges.

A troupe of artists and an ensemble of musicians will present one of the greatest tales of ancient Greek mythology.

The play will be in Vietnamese and French.

Entry will be free. — VNS
