“[T]he Greek myth of a young girl’s abduction to the underworld is told from a feminist perspective.”
Excerpt from press release:
Pencil Kit Productions is premiering brand new play Persephone as part of the 2016 Toronto Fringe Festival. Collectively created by thirteen interdisciplinary artists, the Greek myth of a young girl’s abduction to the underworld is told from a feminist perspective. A story of resilience, sexual awakening and coming of age, Persephone deals with issues that are (in light of recent events) especially relevant to Toronto today: the nature of consent and the confusing road to recovery.
