BREAKDOWN

Synopsis:
A moving tale of redemption, Dublin Carol tells the story of John Plunkett who, on a bleak Christmas Eve, finds himself plagued by the unshakeable ghost of his past. John had made many reckless decisions throughout his life, most of them fueled by alcohol. When he was at his lowest ebb, he received help from a man named Noel who offered him a job as an undertaker and a place to stay. He showed him kindness and respect when most had given up on him. On this Christmas Eve, John returns from a funeral with his young helper Mark and as we learn of his journey through his shattered life, we discover that he is not alone in crisis. Mark is in a romantic relationship where he feels trapped and lost in how to proceed. Shortly after John is visited by his estranged daughter Mary who he hasn’t seen in a decade. She has news for him and along with it, perhaps the opportunity to make amends for past sins.
Roles:
John Plunkett, late 50’s/early 60’s. has wrecked his life with alcohol. While painfully aware of the damage his behavior has caused to his family, he lives in a perpetual state of guilt, regret, and loneliness. He is conflicted on how to move forward himself but very willing to offer advice to others.

Mark early 20’s is a nephew of the owner of the funeral parlor and is helping out. He is a vulnerable young man—confused and troubled by a love affair.
Mary 30’s John’s daughter who hasn’t seen been in contact with her father in 10 years. She is vulnerable feisty, introspective, and passionate. Despite a life of neglect from her father, she still loves him and cares deeply.
