TITMUS THEATRE AT N.C. STATE—Consider Ishmael, who nearly died at sea. Then consider the multitudes fleeing the chaos in Syria, who've determined that an open ocean is more merciful than their own country. Award-winning playwright Naomi Iizuka gets it: On some level, every refugee is an Odysseus, pressed by necessity to abandon his or her homeland, confronted with strange ways and dangers on a journey to an unknown future. In this modern adaptation of Homer, a young refugee separated from his mother is forced to navigate a strange land—the United States—on his own, with few resources. Could you do it? If not, how will he? Mia Self directs this University Theatre production. 7:30 p.m. Thurs.–Sat.; 2 p.m. Sun., $6–$20, 2241 Dunn Ave., Raleigh, 919-515-1100, www.ncsu.edu/arts. —Byron Woods
