Odysseus makes it home

Done.  Play written.

Sirens at work, by Herbert James Draper (link below)
Picture is by Herbert James Draper - another Victorian artist.

Note that our costuming will be significantly less revealing.

Anyway, I have managed to turn almost everyone into a girl.  Including the crew.  Also included are Circe, a siren, several songs, some offstage Cyclopes, Penelope and an invented maidservant, Poseidon and Aeolus.  We'll have a read this afternoon and see how it works.

Had enormous fun re-writing the words of "Poor Unfortunate Souls" and "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree."

Probably will need a re-draft, but I'll test drive it first.
