Preview: The Penelopiad

Starting off the new year in fine form in the city, we have the remounting of THE PENELOPIAD from the Nightwood Theatre company. It was a critical darling last year and audiences went crazy for it. We highly recommend this gem of a show!

Show Description:

"Now that I’m dead, I know everything.” So begins The Penelopiad, Margaret Atwood’s daring response to Homer’s The Odyssey. Destined to spend eternity in Hades, Penelope recounts her life’s story and the murder of her twelve handmaidens by her vengeful husband Odysseus. Atwood’s acerbic wit brings one of history’s most powerful myths to the contemporary imagination. A provocative new look at a woman’s longing, lust and culpability.
