'We had no voice. We had no name. We had no choice'. Ithaca. Ancient Greece. Odysseus has set sail for Troy and his illustrious adventures, leaving behind his wife, Penelope, and her twelve doomed maids. Cambridge Shortlegs present Margaret Atwood's The Penelopiad: a retelling of Homer's classic Odyssey. This energetic and fast-paced production weaves Atwood's witty dialogue with movement and music to tell the story of those whom Homer left behind. Exploring class and gender divide, this reimagining puts a modern punch back into an ancient tale.
