Ancient Greece hits the Winnipeg theatre scene this winter. Enjoy a "brilliant tour de force" contemporary twist on a classic myth in Margaret Atwood's The Penelopiad at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (MTC). Her husband’s gone off to war. With nothing but third-hand news of his exploits, Penelope is left to run the kingdom while dealing with a bratty teenager and a raft of aggressive suitors who are trying to jump the queue. Now, Penelope tells her side of the story. The show runs from February 21 to March 9, 2013. For more information and to find tickets, visit MTC. You can also create a memorable night at the theatre with this dinner and a show deal.
