By Enda Walsh. Siren Theatre Company. Tap Gallery Theatre, Darlinghurst (NSW). September 12 – October 6, 2013.
Siren Theatre Company’s new offering Penelope is an incredibly fresh, energetic and a perfectly realised piece of theatre.
Kate Gaul’s company which previously triumphed with The New Electric Ballroom (Griffin Independent), also penned by Irish playwright Enda Walsh, has done it again.
Based on the last chapter of Homer’s The Odyssey, Walsh’s script is full of poetry, tragedy, vaudevillian slapstick comedy and what can only be seen as the downright futility of life.
