A riveting and savage take on the classic Greek myth of Penelope, wife of Odysseus.
It’s 11.30 a.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.
Fringe First Award, Edinburgh 2010
