Penelope RETOLD was commissioned by Derby Theatre and premiered at the venue in 2014. The production enjoyed an incredibly successful run at the theatre last year and proved incredibly popular with audiences and the press alike.

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.
