Penelope (Odyssey)

The play focusses on the figure of Penelope and is presented exclusively from her standpoint. Before she is finally reunited with Odysseus, she emerges in all her complexity as a queen, the mother of a teenage son, the object of the suitors’ desire, and as a loving, grieving wife who is on the point of accepting that her husband is dead. (Tip: we used two actresses to distinguish between the public figure and private self).
