As part of Studio Theatre's New Ireland: The Enda Walsh Festival, the company invited the Druid Theatre of Ireland to perform Penelope, Walsh's extraordinary riff on Homer's Odyssey, focused on four suitors wooing a beautiful woman in a drained swimming pool. The suitors, in Speedos and terrycloth robes, discuss prophecy and mortality as they contemplate the return of the woman's husband and the end of their lives. To April 3. Studio Theatre, 14th & P Streets NW. Tickets are $50 to $65. Call 202-332-3300 or visit
