Shortlisted for Pleasance's 2020 Charlie Hartill Special Reserve for Theatre
Adelaide wants to make her mom’s life-story mythic. But when she invokes the help of Penelope, the legendary queen from Ancient Greece, it soon unravels as they unpick the systems of storytelling that have trapped women for millennia.
A mother's biography told by her daughter with the help of a live, long-distance phone call to the States. Exploring the value of the myths we inherit, Maude’s devised show stitches together a kitschy, camp patchwork of folksy Americana, old Hollywood cinema, and oral tradition that will make you want to call your mom.
