Arís regrets to report that the remaining performances of ULYSSES have been canceled due to COVID.

Just as Ulysses of old was beset by trials and tribulations on his journey home, so has our production been halted by circumstances beyond our control. We are deeply disappointed that we cannot continue the show at this time.

We would like to thank the amazing theatre artists that brought this dream to life. The cast and company of ULYSSES did work that absolutely had to be seen to be believed. We hope to work with every one of them in the future, and wish them health and happiness.

We would like to thank the many people who support Arís, and who supported this particular production. ULYSSES was a project that meant a lot to people all around the world. Your support was invaluable, and helped us make connections that will be lasting and powerful.

We would like to thank our audience members, without whom there would be no Arís, and no ULYSSES. We appreciate your interest, your engagement, and your presence. We will continue to plan and produce great theatre for you.


Your friends at Arís

For now, ULYSSES must sail back into the mists of Myth and Memory.
