bedbound & misterman: two plays

By Enda Walsh

Paperback £9.99£7.99

Two early plays from the acclaimed Irish writer Enda Walsh.

bedbound is a ferocious two-hander about a father-daughter relationship gone horribly and terrifyingly wrong.

bedbound was first performed at The New Theatre, Dublin, as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival 2000. It received its UK premiere at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, during the 2001 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and was revived at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London, in January 2002.

misterman is a strange and haunting monologue about a missionary who'll stop at nothing.

misterman was first performed by Enda Walsh in a Corcadorca Theatre Company production at the Granary Theatre in Cork in April 1999, directed by Pat Kiernan. A later version (available here) was produced by Landmark Productions and Galway Arts Festival, and performed at the Black Box Theatre, Galway, as part of the Galway Arts Festival, in July 2011.

Press Quotes

'A play unlike any other I have seen. Enda Walsh's vision of wounded humanity... has a precision that is entirely his own... an uncomfortable, unforgettable tour-de-force'

Daily Telegraph on 'bedbound'

'A work that enjoys delving into the nastier zones of human behaviour with a wild and mischievous exuberance'
