There and Back Again An Odyssey

Follow CBeebies’ Patrick Lynch as he uses a pioneering mix of live cinema and theatre to take you on a thrilling ride across the magical world of ancient Greece. With miniature sets Patrick directs the lights, camera and action in front of your eyes to show the Cyclops, the Siege of Troy, the Floating Island, the Land of the Dead, and the whirlpools and mythical creatures which make up the earliest of all fantasy books, Homer’s The Odyssey.


Multiple cameras magnify in wide screen the table-top puppetry, down to the smallest detail, turning a storm-in-a-teacup into an Aegean tempest. Dramatizing the fundamental fable hidden in this classic of world-literature, Theatre And Back Again proves that no matter how far you roam, there’s no place like Homer.


Forming Lyngo Theatre in 2003 Patrick has since collaborated with many of the most exciting artists in children’s theatre, touring the UK and internationally with his innovative and visually distinctive productions.
