Maureen will be leading a reading from "Winners & Losers". See the story synopsis below.


The two one-act plays, Winners and Losers, are presented as a single play, though they share neither characters nor story. The lovers of the first act are a young couple whilst in the second they are well beyond their prime. Together, however, the plays complete each other, observing and commenting on two different kinds of love.

In 'Winners', the carefree, romantic Mag and the uptight, practical Joe are two seventeen-year-olds preparing for their GCE-exams on a sunny day up on a hill "that overlooks the town of Ballymore." Their future seems to be all set, Mag is pregnant, they are engaged to be married and the lease for their flat is signed. The day, however, ends quite differently than expected. Two commentators, accompany the action on stage.

In 'Losers', the middle-aged, likeable Andy Tracey, keeps stepping out of the action in order to share with the audience his love life with the bitter and subdued Hanna Wilson. After they marry, Hanna's domineering mother and their devout neighbour, Cissy Cassidy, continue to play a decisive part in their relationship. Religious service sets the schedule for the day in the Wilson household.

See you there!
