The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood: November 1, 2, 7, 8, & 9 (7:30 pm + 2pm matinee 11/9) Norton Clapp Theatre

"As portrayed in Homer's Odyssey, Penelope -- wife of Odysseus and cousin of the beautiful Helen of Troy -- has become a symbol of wifely duty and devotion, enduring twenty years of waiting when her husband goes to fight in the Trojan War. As she fends off the attentions of a hundred greedy suitors, travelling minstrels regale her with news of Odysseus' epic adventures around the Mediterranean -- slaying monsters and grappling with amorous goddesses.  When Odysseus finally comes home, he kills her suitors and then, in an act that served as little more than a footnote in Homer's original story, ruthlessly hangs Penelope's twelve maids. Now, Penelope and her chorus of wronged maids tell their side of the story..."  (Faber & Faber liner notes)
