A day and a night in the city that never sleeps.
A young woman arrives into JFK with time to kill until her departure tomorrow. She looks up an old college friend who lives in the city. With thirty-one hours till she has to leave, she’s taken on a whistle-stop tour of the city.
Chronicling a night of debauchery and delicate connection followed by a difficult parting in the cold light of day, Gary Duggan's play Stop/Over asks what these little moments mean.
First performed as a rehearsed reading at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in 2008, this new expanded version premiered at the Dublin Fringe Festival in September 2018, in a production by On The Quays.
The 2008 version of Stop/Over is available in the collection Irish Shorts.
