Penelope, dutiful wife of Odysseus and less beautiful cousin of Helen, is ready to tell her story. 

Left alone for decades while Odysseus fights in the Trojan War, Penelope must face her own battles, managing Ithaca, difficult in-laws, her son, and hordes of increasingly menacing suitors. 

Adapted for the stage by Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale), The Penelopiad is a contemporary take on Homer’s The Odyssey that sees Penelope and her twelve wronged maids take centre stage. Full of live music, poetry, tragedy, and Atwood’s wicked humour, The Penelopiad is sure to be a night of storytelling at its most epic!
