Penelope

By Enda Walsh

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

A riveting and savage take on the classic Greek myth of Penelope, wife of Odysseus.

Fringe First Award, Edinburgh 2010

It’s 11.30 a.m. and already it’s thirty-three degrees Celsius. At the bottom of a drained swimming pool, four ridiculous men face their inevitable deaths, and play for an unwinnable love.

Sunday Independent, Ireland

'among the finest plays Walsh has written'

Sunday Times, Ireland
