What It's About

Hot Nights for the War Wives of Ithaka is the story of the chaos that ensues when Aphrodite, goddess of love, and Pan, goat-legged god of shagging everything, descend on the island of Ithaka to seek revenge for the fall of Troy.

Before the night is over, Pan is defiled by an old woman, the suitors to Penelope suffer an unutterable act of humiliation, and Odysseus, King of Ithaka, returns from the war to find that his child-bride has become a woman to be reckoned with.

An ingenious mix of highbrow and lowbrow humor, who could have guessed in school that The Odyssey could be so much funny? Fill your wine glass, nail down your livestock, and prepare to laugh really hard.
