The Night Alive
by CONOR MCPHERSON
Directed by MAELIOSA STAFFORD
13 SEPTEMBER - 14 OCTOBER
Presented in association with O’Punksky’s Theatre.
‘You only get a few goes. At life. You don’t get endless goes. Two, three goes maybe. When you hit the right groove you’ll click right in there…this is it.’
Tommy’s not a bad man, he’s getting by. Renting a run-down room in his Uncle Maurice’s house, just about keeping his ex-wife and kids at arms length and rolling from one get-rich-quick scheme to another with his pal Doc. Then one day he comes to the aid of Aimee, who’s not had it easy herself, struggling through life the only way she knows how. Their past won’t let go easily. But together there’s a glimmer of hope they could make something more of their lives. Something extraordinary. Perhaps.
Conor McPherson’s new play deftly mines the humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations.
* This performance contains violence, coarse language and thematically strong sound.
