The Night Alive

The Night Alive

You only get a few goes. At life. You don’t get endless goes. Two, three goes maybe. When you hit the right groove you’ll click right in there…this is it.

Overview

Tommy is not a bad man, he’s getting by. Renting a rundown room in his Uncle Maurice’s house, just about keeping his ex-wife and kids at arm’s length and rolling from one get-rich-quick scheme to another with his pal Doc.

Then one day he comes to the aid of Aimee, who’s not had it easy herself, struggling through life the only way she knows how. Their past won’t let go easily. But together there’s a glimmer of hope they could make something more of their lives. Something extraordinary. Perhaps.

The Night Alive deftly mines the humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations.

Critic reviews

McPherson’s dialogue is astonishingly natural, and the combination of this with the realist setting makes the play somewhat voyeuristic

A Younger Theatre

There are very few signs of life in this lugubrious revival of the play by Conor McPherson
