When Bobby was 10, his Ma moved 6 men with schizophrenia into the family home to look after.

Like things weren’t mad enough already.

Confronted with memories of his childhood after his Da dies, Bobby’s past begins to collide with the present.

It’s raining outside and he’s stuck indoors; Ma’s restocking the industrial-sized pill cabinet, Da’s in the pub, Martin’s doing laps of the garden, Marv is missing and Mump can see a gorilla in the hall.

Madhouse is based on the true life story of comedian PJ Gallagher.

Story by Una McKevitt. Supported by The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Project Arts Centre. Kindly supported by The Pavilion Theatre.
