From the classic Greek tale of the Trojan War comes this alternate perspective from Penelope, the long-suffering wife of Odysseus. War has broken out over the kidnapping of Helen of Troy. Odysseus is obligated to join in battle, which lasts many years. Upon his return, he kills the suitors who pursued Penelope in his absence, as well as her 12 maids, who he believes helped them. The play is underscored with music from a chorus of the 12 slaughtered maids. This drama comes to us from distinguished Canadian author Margaret Atwood. Ms. Atwood has created a righteously feminist retelling of the classic story.
