Written by Tony-winning Irish playwright Enda Walsh (Once), Penelope is a blackly comic re-imagining of the story of Odysseus' wife. In The Odyssey, Penelope, the faithful wife of Odysseus, patiently awaited the return of her husband as suitors sought to marry her behind his back. In Walsh's clever and eloquent riff, brought to life in Rogue Machine Theatre's magnificently decrepit production, the suitors are clad in Speedos and camping out in an empty swimming pool under a scorching sun. Locked in a do-or-die competition for Penelope's hand, they'll do anything to win the prize and cheat death. First grabbing audiences with Disco Pigs, Walsh has gone on to win numerous awards, including an Obie and four Edinburgh Fringe First Awards, and wrote the screenplay for the Michael Fassbender film Hunger, which won the Caméra d'Or award at the Cannes Film Festival.

I really enjoyed the talented cast. The story was sad piece of history. You go in knowing that Black soldiers in a White town in Texas in the early 1900's would be difficult to watch, but the story Must be told. It was told very well! I was very proud of our Brave soldiers who stood up to the prejudice in order to get the respect and fight for their country.
The staff in the theater were very nice, The seating is open so gert there when the doors open to get a good seat!
We ate at the Brownstone Bistro (next to theater) before the play.
