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.

Press Quotes

Sunday Times

'extraordinary theatre... terrifying'

Sunday Independent, Ireland

'among the finest plays Walsh has written'

Sunday Times, Ireland

'a wild, crazy, word-drunk piece that is destined to lodge in the memory... Walsh possesses a truly original theatrical voice'
