“This is the very last sausage, men, and I wanted you all to know that it's a superior sausage.”

It’s 11.30am and already it’s 92 degrees.  At the bottom of a drained swimming pool, four ridiculous men in Speedos plot and play for an unwinnable love, even as they face certain death at the hands of her returning husband. Locked in a do-or-die competition to win Penelope’s love, they preen and posture and connive in a last ditch effort to cheat a grisly fate.

Based on the final chapter of Homer’s The Odyssey, this newest play by powerhouse Irish playwright Enda Walsh, is an eloquent, wildly funny riff on life, love and the war at home.


Running time: 90 minutes, no intermission.
