The Lost Geneva Project is honored to debut its first production, The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood at the Chicago Fringe Festival in the summer of 2014.
Join the seance and raise the spirits of Penelope, the dutiful wife of wily Odysseus, and her twelve maids, who were put to death upon Odysseus' return home. Based on Margaret Atwood's novella, "The Penelopiad', Penelope takes center stage to do some of her own story-making, but must endure periodic choral interruptions and cheeky observations from her eternally wounded twelve maids.
