There is a new play at the Steppenwolf Theatre titled "Penelope" where four Speedo-clad men are locked in a do-or-die competition to win Penelope’s love, but reach a grisly fate... she needs no man!
Just this month, I decided to reinvent MY 'Penelope' from 2004. I recently had a break up. It's a long story... stemming from my personal reasons and differences of never being married, expressing the 'no need' for a man in my life. Turning away a beautiful love.
She was beautifully rephotographed by Doug Birkenheuer - tag line of 'the epic non-traditional woman.' My story is based off of 'Penelope Reknown' by Marilyn Katz... she is not under any man's control; survives on her own, patiently waiting for her husband to return from the war, while many suitors approach her, she continues to stand her ground.
