“In the 30 years I have been finding plays for The Mill, this is one of the funniest I have read. I laughed out loud, repetedly. When it was performed in London earlier this year people queued round the block to see it” says Sally Hughes, Managing Director.
On his deathbed, Patrick Lynch wants to right his wrongs, make peace with everyone he has offended and meet his maker with a clear conscience and a quiet soul. Amen. So he decides to do the most heartless thing in life a scallywag can do – tell the truth – to friends, neighbours and loved ones. Then, satisfied with the chaos he has created, prepares to die. But ... disaster of disasters! He’s not going to die!
How’s he going to keep all the villagers, who now hate him, at bay? Only one way. Go through with the funeral. Of course.And assume a new identity. Of course.
‘Charley’s Aunt’ meets ‘Father Ted’ in this riotous new Irish farce in which Dwina Murphy Gibb charmingly explores the hilarious consequences of learning the truth.
