The Edinburgh Fringe First winner and sell-out success at this years Galway Arts Festival returns for 4 performances only.

I have given myself to a possibility of love with you! But you have turned me into this, you have reduced me, Penelope to a fat man in SPEEDOS.

Its 11.30am and already its 33 degrees Celsius. At the bottom of a drained swimming pool, four ridiculous men face their inevitable deaths, and play for an unwinnable love.

Druids previous partnerships with Enda Walsh (Edinburgh Fringe First Winners, The Walworth Farce, The New Electric Ballroom) have led to sell out runs in six countries worldwide wowing critics and audiences alike. Dont miss this dynamic duo third time round before Penelope tours to New York, Washington and London.
