THE NIGHT ALIVE
by Conor McPherson
Dir: Tracy Brigden
1st reh: 9/15/15. Perf: 10/10 - 11/1
Main Stage

Tommy has made a mess of things: he’s living low in Dublin, just getting by on odd jobs, and doing his best to avoid his wife and kids. But when he rescues a mysterious woman, an escape out of the squalor is possible—if only they can shake their checkered pasts. This award-winning play from the author of The Seafarer ripples with humor and heart and wrestles with the complicated task of being human.

SEEKING

Tommy
Male, 40s-50s, middle-aged and well worn. A vulnerable, kindhearted guy, he lives off odd jobs, petty crimes, and loneliness. Has dreams of moving out of Dublin and is hustling his way towards a better, more stable life.

Maurice
Male, 70s, owns the ramshackle house where the play takes place. Recently widowed, still blames himself for his wife’s unexpected death and is afraid of dying himself. Equal parts curmudgeon and caring, Maurice is understandably suspicious of Tommy and worried about the state of his home.

Aimee
Female, 20s, skinny and well worn. Works as a sort-of prostitute while dreaming of a better life free of violence, loneliness, and squalor. Has almost lost the energy to go on, but still manages to muster a smile and offer a joke.

Doc
Male, 40s, longtime friend and co-conspirator of Tommy. Is wholeheartedly loyal and takes great pride in his relationship with Tommy. A bit daft, he always seems a beat behind everyone else.

Kenneth
Male, 30s. Aimee’s ex- boyfriend. Is fiercely jealous and controlling. Is volatile, powerful, and dangerous.

For Nina, it’s easy to be hard. A smart and sexy hustler who has rejected everything her parents fought for in the black liberation movement. When her estranged father wants to reconcile—but then tries to run a hustle of his own—negotiating her past and present becomes a revolutionary act. From one of the most exciting young voices in the American theatre, this dynamic new play about fathers and daughters sears with wit and wisdom and the brutal politics of freedom.

KENYATTA SHAKUR
