Sing, O Muse

By

DUMBO A new twist on an old classic is always welcome, and the St. Ann’s Warehouse production of Penelope is no exception. The Edinburgh Fringe First Award-winning play puts an existentialist spin on the last chapter of the Odyssey, placing four of the long-suffering Penelope’s suitors at the bottom of a drained swimming pool while awaiting the return of Odysseus. The Irish playwright, Enda Walsh, was the recipient of a 2010 Obie and also cowrote the Caméra d’Or-winning film Hunger, so expect an intense-yet-quality ride. The play runs through November 14th.
