In The Penelopiad, Margaret Atwood, weaves an 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”.

Hart House Theatre 2018/2019 Season Subscriptions available by phone and in person.
