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 Cambridge Shortlegs, and funded by Pembroke Players, 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).
