Details: Hart House Theatre presents a retelling of classic tale by Canadian icon and award-winning storyteller Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad. Directed by a vigorous new talent, Michelle Langille, featuring a lead performance by powerhouse actor Amanda Cordner, and supported by an all-female ensemble of emergent talent, the production is sure to be an empowering tour de force.

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. The Penelopiad is a re-examining of an epic HIS-story, which uncovers the hypocrisy of the iconic “good wife”.

Warning: Coarse language, sexual and graphic violence
