She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Maiden Voyage

When: May 26 – June 11
Where: West of Lenin, 203 N 36th Street, Seattle
Cost: $10; buy tickets here with discount code HEROINE

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.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
