Umbrella Collective invites you to lend your voice to the new play making process. After the presentation, you'll have the chance to offer your feedback and help shape the future of PENELOPE.
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.
Featuring Rachel Austin, Russ Dugger, Kathryn Fumie, Alana Horton, Jami Jerome, Daniel Ian Joeck, Anni Jordan-Amberg, Tara Lucchino, Marcela, and Mike Ooms.
