Presented by Mother Road Theatre Company. âNow that Iâm dead, I know everything.â So begins THE PENELOPIAD, Margaret Atwoodâs daring response to Homerâs The Odyssey. Destined to spend eternity in Hades, Penelope recounts her lifeâs story and the murder of her twelve handmaidens by her vengeful husband Odysseus. Atwoodâs acerbic wit brings one of historyâs most powerful myths to the contemporary imagination. A provocative new look at a womanâs longing, lust and culpability.
