Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me

Monday 5th October, 2015 to Saturday 10th October, 2015
7:30 pm

wall-s-w-w-o-mBy Frank McGuinness. Directed by Polly Brown.

Three men, each with his own problems and prejudices, are held prisoner by unseen Islamist militants. With grim humour and surreal imaginings they fight to retain their sanity and humanity. Loosely based on the experiences of the Beirut hostages, this award-winning play is by turns angry, poignant, tragic and hilarious but it ends on a defiant note of hope.

(Warning –  contains some strong language – as one would expect, given the circumstances. Not considered suitable for children under 14)
