The Man with the Disturbingly Smelly Foot
Until Sun May 20 Unicorn Theatre, Tooley St, London, SE1 2HZ
He’s furious. Some say his hate is the only thing still keeping him alive.
The Trojan War. You’ve heard of Achilles and Odysseus, but have you heard of Philoctetes? Probably not, because although Philoctetes signed up to go and fight, he never made it: his shipmates abandoned him on an island on the way. And why? Because he had a disgustingly, terribly, disturbingly smelly foot.
Fast-forward ten years and Odysseus needs something Philoctetes has… will Philoctetes forgive and forget, and help the Greek armies win the Trojan war? Or will his need for vengeance overcome him?
Running Time: Approx 60 mins
Insight: Q&A with Ellen McDougall on Thu 10 May after the 1.30pm performance.
A teacher resource pack is available for this production. You can download it here.
The Greeks season is supported by the Foyle Foundation and the Molecule Theatre and was originally developed at the National Theatre Studio.
