Pesto is a great place for after theater dinning. It is noisy but a few corner tables offer more privacy.

Description

A Druid Production

Penelope

by Enda Walsh

directed by Mikel Murfi

One of The New York Times’ top 10 productions of 2010!

Quinn, Burns, Dunne and Fitz’s routine of desperately competing for the love of fair Penelope takes a dramatic turn when the four suitors realize that each of them had the same dream prophesying her husband’s return home after years away at war. Not only will he reclaim his wife’s love, they foresee him slaughtering all her suitors! The four men decide the only way to save their lives is to support one of their fellow suitors to win Penelope’s love before her husband returns. As the men take turns encouraging the “wooer-at-bat,” their longing for Penelope and jealous tendencies lead to sabotage that put their very existence in jeopardy!
