The stage adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 2005 novella The Penelopiad opens Thursday at the RMTC Warehouse.
In Thursday’s Uptown read about how Atwood rescues Penelope from obscurity as the boringly faithful wife in Homer’s Odyssey and makes her a star in The Penelopiad.
The celebrated Canadian novelist tells a very different side of an old story from a female perspective and reveals her heroine to be a wily, pragmatic survivor.
