While Odysseus went off to war…

…abandoning his family and kingdom for 20 years, it is his wife Penelope who strategically saves Ithaca. But there is a cost.  Penelope now sets the record straight by recounting the story we know, with other disturbing facts that have never been discussed. 

In THE PENELOPIAD @CityGarage it is the women who finally illuminate the actual tragedy of Homer’s epic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED #theater #theatre #review @GiaMedia3
