    Details

    Written and performed by Caroline Horton
    Directed by Lucy Doherty

    Welcome to Ithaca. Island paradise and home to Penelope. She’s married to a world famous war hero and she’s had enough of waiting quietly.

    Made with input from soldiers and military spouses, Penelope RETOLD is an irreverent collision of classic myth, The Odyssey and contemporary rage. Get ready for a theatrical storm that sweeps through poetry, songs, comedy and YouTube clips towards a poignant and furious conclusion.

    Olivier Award nominee and Stage Best Solo Performer, Caroline Horton, presents an epic, heartbreaking and fiercely playful tale of love, loneliness and the need to be free.

    “A compelling monodrama” **** The Guardian
