Penelope by Enda Walsh
28 November 2020
Online event
As part of Play It by Ear, The Everyman presents an online rehearsed reading of Penelope, Enda Walsh's tragicomic take on the classic Greek myth of Odysseus's wife, available on live audio broadcast.

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.
