UGA Theatre: The Penelopiad (Canceled)

Cellar Theatre

In light of recent announcements, we are saddened to announce that we must cancel this production out of concern for the health and safety of our patrons, cast, and crew. - 3/13/2020

Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale) provides a contemporary take on Homer’s Odyssey, focusing instead on the faithful Penelope and her struggles to maintain the kingdom of Ithaca, raise her son, and thwart innumerable suitors in her husband’s absence. Upon his return to Ithaca, Odysseus lays waste to not only the suitors but twelve maids tasked with helping Penelope delay the suitors’ advances. Atwood’s haunting retelling serves as an examination of the importance of shifting perspectives and complicity in the face of injustice. Directed by guest artist Eliana Marianes
