WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ellen McLaughlin workshops her new play, Penelope, directed by Lisa Rothe. A woman's ex-husband appears at her door after an absence of 20 years, suffering from brain damage. A veteran of a modern war, he doesn't know who he is and she doesn't know who he's become. While they wait together for his return to himself, she reads him The Odyssey, and in the journey of that book, she finds a way into her former husband's memory and the terror and trauma of war.
