The Penelopiad is Margaret Atwood's new stage adaptation of her own wry, witty and wise novel. In what amounts to a theatrical Olympiad, Penelope and her wronged maids tell their side of the story - how she patiently and devotedly waited 20 years for the return of her husband Odysseus from the Trojan War, only to have him repay her and her maids' devotion with heart-wrenching ruthlessness. Full of music, poetry and movement, this new telling of an ancient story echoes with the fluidity of the original mythic material and timeless resonance for today.
