Penelope

By ENDA WALSH
Directed by MIKEL MURFI

­2010 EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE FIRST AWARD WINNER!

“Extravagantly imaginative”
 -  The New York Times

“This is extraordinary theatre”
­ ­ ­- The Sunday Indepe­ndent­­

“Mr. Walsh’s rich and strange contribution to the field is in its own subversive class.”
-  The New York Times

“The delicate interplay of knockabout comedy, verbal humor and philosophical themes is superb… a box full of brilliant shards”
­ ­ – The Sunday Times ­


I have given myself to a possibility of love with you! But you have turned me into this, you have reduced me, Penelope… to a fat man in SPEEDOS.

It’s 11.30am and already it’s 92 degrees.  At the bottom of a drained swimming pool, four ridiculous men connive, plot and play for an unwinnable love, even as they face certain death at the hands of her returning husband. Based on the final chapter of Homer’s The Odyssey, Penelope is the newest play from Ireland’s Druid Theatre Company, written by 2010 OBIE winner Enda Walsh. This American Premiere marks St. Ann’s third collaboration with Druid and Enda Walsh, following the critical and popular productions of The Walworth Farce and The New Electric Ballroom at St. Ann’s Warehouse.

Penelope is generously supported by Culture Ireland and the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation.
