8 p.m. Oct. 9 – “Daughters of Leda” by Madeline Sayet. As the seasons change and Persephone returns to the underworld, a mortal girl arrives asking questions that turn history upside down. The Fates have a game up their sleeve—they are tired, they need a vacation. But in order to leave, they have to give back the stories they exploited. In a whirlwind of events, Adam & Eve, Leda & the Swan, Helen, Clytemnestra, Iphigenia, and Electra all come together to choose their own destinies and tell their side of the stories that have instilled fear of feminine knowledge for far too long. On the Main Stage of Ohio Wesleyan’s Chappelear Drama Center, 45 Rowland Ave., Delaware. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for senior citizens, Ohio Wesleyan employees, and non-OWU students. Admission is free for Ohio Wesleyan students with a valid university ID.
