WHAT: Chicago playwright Aline Lathrop retells the story of Odysseus from his wife Penelope’s funny and feminist perspective.
SO WHAT: Penelope doesn’t recognize her husband when he returns home from twenty years of war and adventure. Or does she? Set in ancient Greece with modern language, Lathrop’s two-hander reimagines Odysseus’ return from Penelope’s point of view. “Queen of Ithaca” is the story of love and desire, cunning and power, and of a mother who will protect her son at any cost.
