|FAR AWAY AT THE ODYSSEY|
ANGELES -- Where most theatres go soft over the holiday season, mounting
such safe family fare as A Christmas Carol and Forever Plaid, Ron Sossi's
Odyssey Theatre Ensemble goes its own way. The company's hard-edged choice
for Thanksgiving/Christmas is Caryl Churchill's FAR AWAY, a mordant one-hour
drama (first produced in 2000 by Royal Shakespeare Co.) about mankind's
tendency to not only ignore evil but revel in it.
At the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble, 2055 S. Sepulveda Ave. in W. L.A. through Jan 25. Call (310) 477-2055.
