Doonbeg Drama Group present ‘The Night Alive’
18th February 2017 @ 8:00 pm€10
The play by Conor McPearson is set in the drawing room of an Edwardian house in Dublin which is now a bedsit, inhabited by fifty-something, Tommy. He rents the room from his Uncle Maurice who lives upstairs. Tommy’s friend, Doc, also sleeps in the room and helps Tommy doing odd jobs and moving things around with Tommy’s van. None of these men is currently in any kind of relationship and they all scrape by from day to day amid the junk-filled squalor of the house.
One night Tommy rescues a young prostitute called Aimee from a beating on the street. He brings her home to get her cleaned up and she ends up staying. A tentative friendship develops between Tommy and Aimee and indeed between Aimee and the other men in the house over the following weeks. Trouble crashes into their lives however when Aimee’s ex-boyfriend, Kenneth, comes looking for her.
Suitable for over16’s. Play is 1 hr 50mins (excluding interval)
