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 purchased two tickets for my Aunt and friend. I had attended the production two weeks prior. I wanted to gift my awesome experience to my loved ones.
I received a phone call immediately after they walked out of the performance. They were joyously emphatic and singing high praises! "The actor was amazing, each character well thought out and expressed, the wonderful costumes transcended you to another era and journey". Yes, I quoted them. hahaha They went on and on. LOL The best gift I have ever giving!
What a great experience for all. ITS A MUST SEE!

“I just saw this great performance, Oh, Yes She Did by Sandy Brown, covering important African American women throughout history. It was quite incredible. I’ve always been an avid supporter of civil rights and this performance has only strengthened my feminist and egalitarian beliefs. I now have a huge list of books to read by Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, and many others. It will probably take me years to read them all, but that’s a price I’m all too willing to pay. So I say: “Power to the people!!!” —Feminist Humor Blog
