VAULT Festival Presents IF WE GOT SOME MORE COCAINE I COULD SHOW YOU HOW I LOVE YOU

Offie-nominated If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You is a play of small dreams and big hopes. John O'Donovan's working-class love story explores the ways people find love and kindness, even when oppression kicks them from all angles.

Loveable tearaways Mikey and Casey are stuck on a roof. As they wait for the Guards to stop circling the house, they find that there are some truths you can't climb down from. Set twenty feet up, this raucous romantic drama follows two young men as they smoke, drink and snort their way towards discovering love.

Alan Mahon (recently seen in Brutal Cessation at the Edinburgh Fringe and Hamlet at the Tobacco Factory) returns to the role of Mikey, for which he received an Off West End Award nomination for Best Male Performance. Joining the cast in the role of Casey is Josh Williams (One Night In Miami, Donmar Warehouse; Barbarians, Found 111; Wendy and Peter, RSC and Love and Information, Royal Court).

If We Got Some More Cocaine... is about going down roads not laid for you, climbing ladders that weren't set out for you, never asking permission, and trying not to end up so thick-skinned that you forget how to see the good in things.

Writer John O'Donovan comments, I loved imagining my hometown from that rooftop angle. Just thinking about the town and the places I used to wander around, but seen from above. It seemed significant to me that these characters that many see as lowlifes were being raised up, and from there could see further than most but now had no way of accessing the paths they could see. That seemed to me a good metaphor for what it was like to grow up poor, to always be at risk of being left behind by people who can routinely afford to go on to better things. You see them succeeding, but you've no idea how to get going on the path they took.
