In The Penelopiad, award-winning storyteller, Margaret Atwood, weaves a historic saga from a new perspective. After years of loyalty through untold hardship and upon her hero-husband’s return from war, Penelope’s fidelity is rewarded with butchery and abuse. Featuring a cast of women and Atwood’s wry humour, The Penelopiad is a re-examining of an epic HIS-story, which uncovers the hypocrisy of the iconic “good wife”.
