"The only theatre worth spending a night on is the kind that takes you out of yourself to somewhere else.."
Martin spends its time in a rural Irish boozer, passing banter and ghost stories with four ordinary blokes and a bird.
In this great play Conor McPherson shows the eternity drunks see in the bottom of a whisky glass: a muddled soulful place where words fade, all loves are lost and you huddle round the fire to keep out the endless night.
The cast is led by the superb Brian Cox as a compassionate old loner
The thing that binds these characters together is love. The dogged affection that this unassumingly brilliant playwright has for the people he writes
The sense of grace and even benediction that settles on the end of their evening, when everyone, no matter how drunk or gripey or tragic their stories are, look their fellow creatures in the eye and feel sorry for their loss.
Great Irish playwriting not to be missed!
