About the production

Written by: Mark O’Rowe

Directed by: Veronica Coburn

The atmosphere is tense, given the climate of anti-drug campaigns and vigilante watching posts mounted at every street corner.  For Melissa, Suzanne and Breda, information is everything and they are well positioned to take in all the action as it unfolds… Peadar and Jimmy are ready for the fight, Geetar, Skinny and Magoo are ready for sex, even if it’s only talking about it!

Mark O’Rowe was specially commissioned by Dublin Youth Theatre to write for them.  He has produced a play which is fast, funny and, behind the constant slagging, a glimpse of the lurking underbelly of contemporary youth culture.  His dialogue is immediate and recognizable, his characters even more so.  Yet by the end of the play, the underlying violence and harsh reality of these young people’s lives has already made them much older than their years.
