A rehearsed reading of Penelope, by Enda Walsh, as part of Play It by Ear, a programme of shows for The Everyman stage and available on live audio broadcast.
Enda Walsh‘s play is a riveting and savage, tragicomic take on the classic Greek myth of Penelope, wife of Odysseus.
It’s 11.30a.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. Complete with its echoes of Beckett, Pinter and of course James Joyce, Penelope is a fascinating take on one of the most ancient of Greek myths, reforged for our time by one of Ireland’s most innovative and beguiling writers.
