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.
