Powers New Voices Festival - The Janeiad


The Janeiad
By Anna Ziegler

7:30 p.m.

In The Odyssey, Penelope’s long wait is eventually rewarded when Odysseus returns 20 years after leaving to fight the Trojan War. Will the same be true for Jane in Brooklyn in 2021, 20 years after her husband left for work one fateful September morning? A play about longing and hope as well as the myths we tell ourselves in order to get through the day, The Janeiad is a wry contemplation of the power, and slipperiness, of storytelling.

Tickets to all festival readings require reservations and are free. Reservations for Globe subscribers and donors are available now through January 4, 2023. Subject to availability, reservations for the general public will be available beginning January 5 at 12:00 noon.
