Penelope of Ithaca is a new play by Kenny Finkle commissioned for the re-opening of the Hangar Theatre. Combining the Greek myth of Penelope awaiting the return of her husband Odysseus with modern tales of life in Ithaca, Finkle uses his own nationally renowned sense of whimsy and humanity to explore our need to be loved. "Finkle gives his central characters rich detail, letting comedy arise naturally from their interactions. More than making jokes, he's crafting a story," (Variety).
