Mac, an adjunct lecturer, and Nessa, a freshman, have a lot in common. They’re slightly awkward, deeply passionate about Homer’s The Odyssey, and are Black in a very white department at a very white school. They stumble upon the discovery that Homer himself came from Africa, and must figure out how best to honor this truth in the face of university administrators, overbearing older siblings, the Internet, and Homer himself. Homeridae is a play about who controls the narrative, and about finding your voice when it seems like no one is listening.

[more+]

This Spring, The Coterie presents Mesner Puppet Theater’s premiere production of How to Snag a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale, an all masked, socially distanced, live show with an online streaming option available for those who are unable to attend in person. An adaptation of the endearing American folktales of Stormy Stormalong, How to Snag a Sea Monster will perform for families with ages five and older live on The Coterie’s stage in Crown Center, April 30 – May 30, with the streaming version available for families and virtual school field trips beginning May 5, 2021.
In How to Snag a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale, after a monstrous wave washes a creature ashore, the people of a small Cape Cod town hear it wailing. What they initially fear might be a sea monster, turns out to be a baby as big as a house. The village adopts the giant baby, whom they name Stormalong, or 'Stormy' for short, but growing to over 24 feet, Stormy struggles to fit in, and eventually chooses a life at sea aboard a clipper ship to find a place in the world. Meanwhile, when a bullying sea monster, the colossal kraken, does come to torment the village... only Stormy is big enough to save them all!

This Spring, The Coterie presents Mesner Puppet Theater’s premiere production of How to Snag a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale, an all masked, socially distanced, live show with an online streaming option available for those who are unable to attend in person. An adaptation of the endearing American folktales of Stormy Stormalong, How to Snag a Sea Monster will perform for families with ages five and older live on The Coterie’s stage in Crown Center, April 30 – May 30, with the streaming version available for families and virtual school field trips beginning May 5, 2021.
In How to Snag a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale, after a monstrous wave washes a creature ashore, the people of a small Cape Cod town hear it wailing. What they initially fear might be a sea monster, turns out to be a baby as big as a house. The village adopts the giant baby, whom they name Stormalong, or 'Stormy' for short, but growing to over 24 feet, Stormy struggles to fit in, and eventually chooses a life at sea aboard a clipper ship to find a place in the world. Meanwhile, when a bullying sea monster, the colossal kraken, does come to torment the village... only Stormy is big enough to save them all!
