sept 25-oct 13 | penelope | sean devine + kyle jespersen

Sean Devine (RE:UNION) and Kyle Jespersen (TEN NOVEMBER, LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT) in a play at Rumble this fall!

PENELOPE by Enda Walsch
Sept. 25-Oct. 13

It’s 11:30 a.m. and already it’s 35 degrees. At the bottom of a drained swimming pool on a sun-scorched Greek island, four ridiculous men face their inevitable deaths, and lock horns over another man’s wife. They are the last of the hundred suitors for Penelope’s hand as she waits ten lonely years for her husband, Odysseus, to return from the Trojan Wars. They preen and posture and drink in a ludicrous ritual of courting and competition. But as the day wears on and the signs of Odysseus’s arrival grow more ominous, one of them must win Penelope’s love or they will all die trying!

From the creative team that brought you The Last Days of Judas Iscariot comes the Canadian premiere of Irish playwright Enda Walsh’s riveting, savage and wildly funny take on the classic Greek myth.
