As part of Rough Magic’s 20th anniversary programme Rough Magic will present two plays developed during the hugely successful SEEDS project.
“And she wasn’t a very loving mother. I mean she never made rice krispie buns – do you know what I mean?”
Eddie and his sons work nights. Bren (the love child) surfs the net alone. Andy (planned) can’t confirm the whereabouts of his girlfriend and son. Kev (the mistake) isn’t throwing his money around like the IT whizzkid they take him for. A duty visit to their mother requires them to act like model siblings; but confusion around her illness, which hospital she is in, and references to her mysterious good news become the fuel for this dark comedy of a disintegrating family.
The two plays will be presented in a repertory season, with each play running three evenings each week, and both performed on Saturdays, giving audiences an opportunity to purchase a special ticket to see both plays in one day.
Cast: Joe Hanley, Aidan Kelly, Vincent McCabe and Barry Ward.
