The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

We begin the Fall main stage season with this daring response to Homer’s The Odyssey in which 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.
