CANCELLED: Performance: The Penelopiad

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale) provides a contemporary take on Homer’s Odyssey, focusing instead on the faithful Penelope and her struggles to maintain the kingdom of Ithaca, raise her son, and thwart innumerable suitors in her husband’s absence. Upon his return to Ithaca, Odysseus lays waste to not only the suitors but twelve maids tasked with helping Penelope delay the suitors’ advances. Atwood’s haunting retelling serves as an examination of the importance of shifting perspectives and complicity in the face of injustice.
