‘What are we if we are not our stories?’
It’s 11 o’clock in the morning in a council flat on the Walworth Road in London. In two hours time, as is normal, three Irish men will have consumed six cans of Harp, fifteen crackers with spreadable cheese, ten pink biscuit wafers and one oven cooked chicken with a strange blue sauce. In two hours time, as is normal, five people will have been killed.
Direct from a critically acclaimed run in St Ann’s Warehouse, New York and the 2007 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this remarkable play by Enda Walsh delivers an achingly tender insight into what happens when we become stuck in the stories we tell ourselves about our lives.
“As brilliant an original as you are likely to see in the theatre this year ”
The New York Sun “this play should go everywhere and be seen by everyone”
Village Magazine “language that swaggers with vitality”
The Guardian “a technical tour-de-force and a remarkable theatrical development”
The Sunday Times “It is exhilarating to hang on for dear life on a ride through Mr. Walsh’s bold, original imagination”
The New York Sun “ferociously entertaining”
The New York Times “Presented with terrific farcical flair”
