Sept 25 - Oct 4, Smock Alley Theatre
'Pan Pan Theatre, easily Ireland’s most searching contemporary theatre company.' - The Irish Times
'He meets people all the time. That’s his job. But if you meet him and you get on with him, then the next time he has a job that you’d be good at, you’d be top of his list of people he’d give it to.’
Looking at indeterminacy, randomness and the role of fate, Newcastlewest is a new comedy by Dick Walsh.
Marya is a woman really struggling with today.
She lives in a house with her father. He is getting old. She is getting old. He’s a pain in the hole. Her thighbone is decaying. She’s got no job, or even the prospect of a job. Then a local man done good comes to tell them about his position in Brussels.
This world premiere from the award-winning Pan Pan Theatre builds on the success of previous festival presentations including The Seagull and Other Birds, Everyone is King Lear in his Own Home and The Rehearsal: Playing the Dane.
Contains strong language and sexual references.
