Description
An experiment is underway at the Luther Manor retirement community in Milwaukee: Playwright Anne Basting and Sojourn Theatre are working alongside staff and students from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to engage those living in this nursing home to stage a performance of "Finding Penelope," an original interpretation of Penelope's story from Homer's "Odyssey." Director Brad Lichtenstein ("As Goes Janesville," MFF 2012) helms this portrait of a community looking to raise the bar on bingo. It asks the important question: Can we age more meaningfully?
