The Penelopiad

Feb. 27 – March 4, 8 p.m. (Sunday at 2 p.m.), JKB Theater

Written by Margaret Atwood and directed by Emily Moler, the Penelopiad is a play that takes on a modern twist of The Odyssey. Atwood has chosen to give a voice to Penelope, wife of Odysseus, and to her twelve maids. In this dazzling, playful retelling, the story becomes as wise and compassionate as it is haunting, and as wildly entertaining as it is unsettling. With wit and verve—drawing on the story-telling and poetic talent for which she herself is renowned—Atwood gives Penelope new life and reality, and sets out to provide an answer to an ancient mystery. Tickets are $8 for students and $12 for the general public.
