The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

I Am Proud To Announce That I Will Be Directing A Seminar Production Of The Penelopiad By Margaret Atwood In The Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater Black Box This Spring. The Penelopiad Will Feature Performances By Skidmore College Actors As Well As The Work Of Student Designers, Composers, And Choreographers.

In a splendid contemporary twist on The Odyssey, Margaret Atwood has chosen to give a voice to Penelope, wife of Odysseus, and to her twelve maids. In this dazzling, playful retelling, the story becomes as wise and compassionate as it is haunting, and as wildly entertaining as it is unsettling. With wit and verve, drawing on the story-telling and poetic talent for which she herself is renowned, Atwood gives Penelope new life and reality--and sets out to provide an answer to an ancient mystery.

The Penelopiad Will Run February 27-March 4.
