What's the classic heroine Penelope to do when her celebrated husband is away for years? The poet Homer gives us the "official version" of Odysseus' undertakings in "The Odyssey" - glorified fighting in the Trojan War, clever slaying of monsters, and blissful indulgences of a beautiful island goddess. But what was the less celebrated Penelope really doing at home? Penelope and her maids finally tell her side of the story in the East Coast premiere of THE PENELOPIAD by Margaret Atwood - legendary author of The Handmaid's Tale.
