The Lyric Theatre & Dublin Theatre Festival present:
The Night Alive
By Conor McPherson
Set in Dublin, The Night Alive tells the story of Tommy – a middle-aged man, just about getting by. He’s renting a run-down room in his uncle Maurice’s house, keeping his ex-wife and kids at arm’s length and rolling from one get-rich-quick scheme to the other with his pal Doc.
Then one night 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 that they could make something more of their lives.
Something extraordinary. Perhaps …
Starring Adrian Dunbar, Kate Stanley Brennan, Laurence Kinlan, Ian Lloyd-Anderson and Frank Grimes.
Extraordinary. Ascends to a plane that can only be called transcendent.
