Penelope Haunts Twice

By Thomas Hardy and Vincent Starrett

Falconbridge's hair-raising Halloween tradition returns as we present two chilling tales with just one name: Penelope.

The Lady Penelope by Thomas Hardy: Strange fates await the once-lovely Penelope and those who pursue her.

Penelope by Vincent Starrett: Penelope is a star in the heavens, and being born under her can make for an adventuresome life. Penelope is also a woman of strange and compelling beauty. Both can turn a manís world upside-down.

Don't miss out on this spooky event presented by Falconbridge's expert storytellers!

Produced by Falconbridge Players at Arts + Literature Laboratory, 111 S. Livingston St. Madison
