Odyssey is Hijinx’s inclusive adults' community group.

This year, we are celebrating 25 years of creating engaging community theatre for families.

Each winter our members perform in the Weston Studio, Wales Millennium Centre. Our plays are written for the cast, who work with a professional production team invested in our members. This year our cast will also be devising and performing a piece of outdoor theatre for Hijinx’s Unity Festival.
