A programme of intimate theatre experiences that paints a very private portrait of Dublin city and its inhabitants
“This is just this. It isn’t real. It’s money.”
In a guesthouse in Dublin’s north inner city, a vulnerable and confused young rent-boy sits with a middle-aged client. It’s not the first time they’ve met but today the older man has blood on his shirt. A lot has happened since they last met.
Multiple award-winning Mark O’Halloran is one of Ireland’s most celebrated screenwriters and has received worldwide acclaim with his films Adam & Paul and Garage. Performed in a real-life bed and breakfast, Trade is a provocative and moving exploration of desire, morality and duty , and is O’Halloran’s first stage play in ten years.
