EPUB £7.99£6.39

McCafferty's break-through play, a tender and comic portrait of love, dignity and emotional damage.

Vera is feisty but fading, Ronnie is washed up and permanently half-drunk. Together they run a grubby pub/hotel in present-day Belfast. It is a refuge for the assorted regulars who wash up there, as well as its rickety owners. Today is a day like many before, turning groggily into a night which might erode everyone's ability to cope with each other, or themselves.

Owen McCafferty's play Closing Time was first performed at the National Theatre, London, in September 2002.

Press Quotes

'McCafferty's writing is wonderfully attentive to the beauty of the real world – the mundane and common place has a poetic elegance which he draws with stunning accuracy and every one of the diverse characters is fully and neatly formed'
