JOIN WE PLAYERS in MAKING HISTORY...AGAIN!

We Players brings our unique form of interactive theater and site-specific spectacle to Angel Island California State Park, the largest island in the San Francisco bay. In spring 2012 we present an island-wide, epic performance adventure of THE ODYSSEY! This all-day journey will occur throughout the hills and historic buildings, the cement bunkers and natural environs of Angel Island, surrounded by stunning view of the San Francisco Bay. 

You will walk many miles, you will encounter monsters, nymphs, gods and even mere mortals. There will be feasts, libations, storms, and beach front property. You will journey to the Kingdom of the Dead, you will climb Mount Olympus and if you are brave, resilient and determined - you will reach your native land at last. May the power of Zeus be with you and may Athena guide you. 

BUT FIRST  -  may the glory of your generosity help We Players create this epic island adventure.

Ready?   Get set...   GIVE!   (you will be rewarded...and the gods will smile favorably on you) 

Our Kickstarter goal reflects only 10% of our overall budget...              Help us get there!
