Following the critical success for IN/OUT (A Feeling) including an Off-West End Award nomination of 2016’s best new play, writer Andrew Maddock returns to the Hope Theatre for the second time in 2016 with a double bill of monologues and a further stand-alone instalment of the Off-West End Award nominated The Me Plays with The We Plays [Cyprus Sunsets and Irn Pru].
Cyprus Sunsets: The blistering heat of the island of Cyprus is the backdrop into the psyche of a man retreating to the island after a bitter breakup. Package holiday woes, screaming children, Keo Beer & Madonna all factor into his challenge to witness just one perfect sunset, before we discover all is not what it seems. Cyprus Sunsets is performed by John Seaward
Irn Pru: With another local business closed because of a new Waitrose in nearby Bearsden. Drumchapel native Pru desperately needs a job, she also needs to stop swearing. And why is she wearing a viking helmet? Irn Pru is a love letter to the city of Glasgow as our heroine follows the mantra of Michelle Mone, plays us some Salt-N-Pepa and battles the elements, herself and the prejudice of other people in order to come out on top. Irn Pru is performed by Jennifer O’Neill.
The We Plays are a celebration of love, life, loss and the daily struggles we all face, no matter where we come from..
Running time: 95 Minutes (Includes 15 minute interval)
Phillip Croft will direct Cyprus Sunsets starring John Seaward (The BFG, Phillip Pullman’s Grimm Tales, The Inbetweeners)
Ashley Winter will direct Irn Pru starring Glaswegian actress Jennifer O’Neill (The Kitchen, Alice).
