Parley Playwrights’ Group is opening a reimagined version of the classic The Odyssey called “Maiden Voyage” at West of Lenin on May 26th, centered around the women behind the story.
Penelope’s heroic husband has been away from home for nearly twenty years. During that time, Penelope ran his estate, raised his college-bound son, and won acclaim for writing an important book about him called The Odyssey. (So who’s the hero here?)
Maiden Voyage is Parley’s first fully produced production, after premiering nearly 30 new workshops of plays by Seattle Playwrights in the past three seasons.
