The book is a chorus of candid thoughtful voices of people involved in a two year partnership to shape a collaborative performance project between a longterm care community and university theatre students in Milwaukee and a Chicago based theatre company Juxtaposing the myth of Penelope who waited 20 years for the return of Odysseus from the Trojan War with the story of an elder in longterm care waiting for a long overdue visit from her daughter The Penelope Project utilized a range of diverse art forms to create a site specific work staged at the longterm care community itself The book is not only a highly readable chronicle of one inspiring project it provides a useful step by step guide for artists and anyone committed to infusing longterm care with creative possibilities
