ABOUT THE SHOW
Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace
Directed by Melanie YC Pepe

From the author of The Handmaid’s Tale.

Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace tells the true story of an Irish immigrant who worked as a household maid in the mid-1800s and was later convicted of murder. Although set in another era, it speaks specifically and almost uncannily to today’s audiences. The show addresses issues such as the reception of immigrants, the predatory nature of the powerful, and how others in power conspire to keep their crimes hidden.
