Collapse

by Allison Moore

Collapse

You haven’t gone to work in weeks, your wife’s pumped full of hormones and your sister-in-law has just announced she’s moving in. What better time to go on a secret mission as a drug mule? The stakes keep rising in Allison Moore’s anxious new comedy of loss and recovery amid the rubble of modern life.

Penelope

by Enda Walsh

Penelope

Penelope is Irish phenom Enda Walsh’s wildly ingenious spin on Homer’s The Odyssey. But it’s hardly your parents’ Odyssey; it’s one that’s drunk on language, big on laughs, and infused with the tragicomic spirit of Samuel Beckett. A beautiful woman, an empty swimming pool, four middle-aged men in Speedos, and a returning warrior. The hourglass is almost empty and wanting to die has never been this entertaining. Enda Walsh brings the goods in this brazen tale of truth, love, and the epic quest for victory.
