Skidmore Theater Presents: The Penelopiad

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015
Holy shit.

Holy shit.

Tickets are currently available for the Skidmore Theater Department‘s spring black box production, Margaret Atwood’s The Penelopiad. Directed by Emily Moler ’15, The Penelopiad opens Friday, Feb. 27th and runs until March 4th.

In a splendid contemporary twist on The Odyssey, Margaret Atwood has chosen to give a voice to Penelope, wife of Odysseus, and to her twelve maids. In this dazzling, playful retelling, the story becomes as wise and compassionate as it is haunting, and as wildly entertaining as it is unsettling. With wit and verve, drawing on the story-telling and poetic talent for which she herself is renowned, Atwood gives Penelope new life and reality–and sets out to provide an answer to an ancient mystery.

Reservations are a must, as the show will most definitely sell out. Tickets are $8 for students/seniors and $12 for general admission. Contact the Box Office at 518-580-5439 or boxoffice@skidmore.edu for ticket information, or just check out the “Get Tickets” page to directly purchase tickets.

The spring black box production is always directed by a student, so if you’re looking for some fresh theater that isn’t produced by some old fart, get your reservations now and support one of your peers who’s actually doing shit and making something cool.
