Home/Sick

Home/SickThe West Coast premiere of a theatrical re-imagination of the history of the Weather Underground, developed and devised by New York City theater collective The Assembly and members of the cast.

"The ensemble is terrific and did an excellent job capturing the essence of the many societal challenges posed during this period of historical significance." - Performing Arts LIVE


Disgusted by the Vietnam War and the government's repression of those seeking equality domestically, a handful of leaders from the 1960s student movement seized control of Students for a Democratic Society and reshaped it in the name of overthrowing the United States government. Believing violence to be the only means to transform American politics and society, these passionate idealists accelerated a movement to a revolutionary fervor, but left a country behind.

“A cutting-edge young theater collective...By the end we have witnessed a sort of sociological big bang, when this tight, angry ball of political energy suddenly bursts and disbands irreparably,” said Catherine Rampell, The New York Times”

Home/Sick, the seventh production created and staged by The Assembly, premiered at Brooklyn's The Collapsible Hole in 2011, where it extended and was named Critics' Pick by The New York Times, Backstage and Off Off Online. It was subsequently remounted at the Living Theatre in 2012 (where it was famously performed by flashlight during Hurricane Sandy) and at Wesleyan University in 2014. Recommended for mature audiences.

Performances of Home/Sick take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. from June 9 through July 3. There will be one additional performance on Monday, June 27 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $34. The third Friday of every month is wine night at the Odyssey: enjoy complimentary wine and snacks and mingle with the cast after the show. The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., West Los Angeles, 90025. For reservations and information, call (310) 477-2055 or go to www.OdysseyTheatre.com.
