The Night Alive by Conor McPherson
“There’s even days when mass just takes you nowhere, just deposits you back on the pavement, just another invisible man, knowing that the end is sneaking in on you and knowing it’s gonna be the worst part of your life.”
Directed by Dylan Key
November 18 – December 12, 2015 at Undermain Theatre
The Night Alive follows the lives of four modern Dubliners who are trying to get by, helping each other stay one step ahead of the past. Tommy’s a middle-aged misfit renting a run-down room in his uncle Maurice’s house, rolling from one get-rich-quick scheme to the other with his pal Doc, a homeless mystic. One day he comes to the aid of Aimee, a twenty-something lass who hasn’t had it too easy herself. Their past won’t let go easily. But together there’s a glimmer of hope they could make something more of their future.
