If we’re going to talk about the Trojan War, we need a drink.

Penelope, the wife of Odysseus, is fed up and has some things she wants to say. With glass of bourbon in hand, she takes the microphone to chronicle those twenty years waiting on the small island kingdom of Ithaca.

With soulful music, this witty and thoughtful musical flips the script on the dutiful wife, as Penelope steps out of the background to claim her time in the spotlight.

Running time is approximately 70 minutes, no intermission.

This show is recommended for teens and up, has mild adult language, and will use theatrical haze. Click here for more detailed content warnings.
