It’s 11.30 am and already 33 degrees. At the bottom of a drained swimming pool, four men play, plot and connive for the love of Penelope as they face certain death at the hands of her returning husband. From the company who bought you The New Electric Ballroom in 2012 comes a vaudevillian, irreverent, poetic work based on the final chapter of Homer’s The Odyssey by powerhouse writer Enda Walsh.
Penelope is about “… atonement, redemption, and what it is to face death and trying to make sense of wasted shitty lives…” Enda Walsh
