Who tells the story? Margret Atwood’s groundbreaking and proactive play retells the tale of Homer’s The Odyssey, through the lens of Odysseus’s long suffering wife, Penelope. With characteristic a wry wit, Atwood recounts the plight of Penelope as she waits for husband to return—fending off hundreds of suitors as she and her handmaidens hold together the house Odysseys abandoned for his quest. Upon his return, Odysseus inexplicably hangs Penelope’s twelve maids—a footnote in the original story, but the central event in Atwood’s retelling.
