Herbie Hoctor has just been trying to keep his head above water like anybody but it’s difficult when your landlord has given you notice, when your neighbour is threatening you with the Guards; when you’ve been fired from your job; when there’s a dead body lying under your bedroom floor and – worst of all – when you’ve just discovered that your ex-girlfriend, the love of your life, is getting married… tomorrow… in New York City beyond in America country…
‘Lockdown in Boyle’
Written by David Tristram and directed by Sinead Quinn
Performed by The Breffni Players
Set in Lockdown, Chairman Gordon calls an emergency meeting with the only three members in attendance diva-like Margaret, affable Bernard and ditsy Joyce to discuss their next production. Tristram’s play is packed full of laughs while reminding us what a devastating effect the pandemic had on the Arts.
