The return of the Penelopiad

25. 10. 2022

Dear visitors,

Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad is returning to the Festival Ljubljanastage. Homer’s Penelope, the faithful and patient wife who has for centuries served as a perfect example of the subjugation of women, is completely transformed by Margaret Atwood. In The Penelopiad, Penelope and her twelve maids are made the centre of the story and brought up to date. Is Penelope lying or telling the truth?

We invite you to join us in watching The Penelopiad, as directed by Livija Pandur, on 2, 7 and 8 November at 7.30 pm in the Knights’ Hall at Križanke.
