The Penelopiad
    By Margaret Atwood

    23:00, Wed 20th November 2013 - Sat 23rd November 2013 at ADC Theatre
    Michaelmas Week 6

    When Odysseus finally came home, after years at sea, he ruthlessly hanged twelve innocent maids. Whilst this was a mere footnote in Homer's original story, Margaret Atwood has given these women a voice, in her dark yet witty play: 'The Penelopiad'.

    Presented by this year's freshest dramatic talent, in a challenging physical theatre adaptation - inspired by Frantic Assembly, see one of the world's most famous myths retold through Atwood's "cunning replotting and smart updating" (Mary Beard).
