The Penelopiad By Margaret Atwood And Directed By Emily Moler Opened February 27th In The Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Black Box Theater And Ran For Six Sold Out Performances.
"The Penelopiad was a masterfully mixed cocktail of humor, intelligence, and tragedy. The terrible fate of the 12 maids, unjustly vilified, has echoes in a contemporary world that is encountering its own transforming social narrative. Those marginalized, silenced, and slandered—blamed for crimes they did not commit, but were in fact the very victims—are speaking up. The justice which the 12 maids call for, delivered from the dark shadows of Hades where they have been abandoned, is perhaps finally being heard in the twenty-first century."
