Hearth and Homer by Gerald Osborn

Hearth and Homer is the untold story of the troubled teen years of Homer, poet of antiquity:  “Growing up with a Greek Chorus in your living room can really mess you up!”  Hearth and Homer. Epic cast…epic passion…epic hijinks!  

Written and directed by Gerald Osborn, with readers Brenda J. Brown, Lori Biamonte Mohacsy, Ruby Swekla, Catherine Wenschlag, Laena Anderson, Clayton Plamondon, Eric Smith, Landon Shayne Penner, Andy Northrup and Francie Goodwin-Davies.  

Hearth and Homer will be preceded by a short curtain raiser, Bonobo Bacchanale, also written and directed by Gerald Osborn. Bonobo Bacchanale is a hard-hitting documentary about the sex lives of bonobo apes, hosted by world-renowned primatologist Dr. Mitzi Morotzik.
