A Fringe-worthy adaptation of The Odyssey. Backyard BBQ style.
Penelope's husband Odysseus is famously the slowest, taking over 10 years to wind his way home post-Trojan War, what with storms, a cyclops, sirens, and more. But Penny doesn't just sit on her hands for a decade. Umbrella Collective's spin on the classic will find more than matronly virtue in the enigmatic best-wife-ever. Deception, suitors, sex, contests, bows and arrows, murder, and yarn. Well. Probably not that much yarn. PENELOPE.
