Denouement Published

My play Denouement has just been published by the nice folk at Concord Theatricals.

Feels like a bit of a cheat to have a published play without a production but unfortunately, the pandemic fucked it. Still though, nice to be a published playwright. Here’s the jist of it:

Ireland, 2048. Edel and Liam have been married for 37 years. They live in a small isolated farmhouse at the foot of a mountain. The world is ending and we meet them in their final hour of life before everything is wiped out entirely. Their children have grown up and moved away and now they live together, alone. They take drugs, say goodbye to old friends and former lovers, air old grievances, argue, bicker and ultimately, try to reconcile their relationship. They will do this until the end of time.

Hopefully the show will get a full production sometime, ideally before it becomes a contemporary play in 2048.

Thanks to everyone at Lyric Theatre and Traverse Theatre for their support. Especially Rebecca Mairs.

You can buy a copy of the play here.

(I have no clue if it’s going to be released over here, but will update if it happens. Shipping charges are a fucker from Britain right now)
