Penelope - NPR Nursing Home Special

I know their is conversation from time to time about nursing homes. I saw this and thought some people might be interested in watching.

[I][I]What happens when a nursing home decides to throw out the bingo boards and take on the Odyssey instead? Penelope: The Documentary tells the story of how residents, some with severe dementia or wheel-chair bound, collaborate with playwright Anne Basting and Sojourn Theater to create “Finding Penelope”, a play reinterpreting Homer’s Odyssey to tell it from Penelope’s point of view. As we learned, some heroes stay at home!

The film is a beautiful exploration of how the residents, actors and students collaborated, from reading the Odyssey together to learning Greek and eventually putting on a professional play featuring scenes all over the nursing home and an audience of over 400 moving through the space. Whether you want to be entertained, you work with older adults, you’re an artist or you are looking for your own adventure — you’ll love Penelope. Visit The Penelope Project website to learn more and buy the film or arrange a screening.
