"When you set out for Ithaka,
ask that your way be long,
full of adventure, full of instruction.
Have Ithaka always in your mind.
Your arrival there is what you are destined for.
But don't in the least hurry the journey.
Better it last for years.
So that when you reach the island you are old,
rich with all you have gained on the way..."
These soaring words from the poet Constantine P. Cavafy I feel best express what we in the Theatre at Wellesley College hope for our new season. We are setting sail with hopes and dreams and yes, a little apprehension at what might lie ahead. Our craft is sturdy and the crew undaunted. What we must do now is forge ahead with you our audience to find our own enchanted isles.
