PENELOPE HAS BEEN MOVE TO THE PRINCE THEATER, 1412 CHESTNUT STREET.
“Mr. Walsh has an intense, love-hate relationship with words… And the gorgeous, outlandish sentences and speeches he weaves seem to self-destruct even as they are spoken.”—New York Times
This inspired take on Homer’s The Odyssey finds four absurd men holding vigil in an empty swimming pool. These are the last of the one hundred suitors of Penelope, who has waited ten years for her husband Odysseus to return from the Trojan Wars. Will the great warrior return and slay his rivals? Or will Penelope give up and turn to a new love? Directed by Tom Reing.
