A new play by Associate Playwright, Lisa Tierney-Keogh.
‘Paul, darlin’, this isn’t a democracy. It’s a residents association.’
On a quiet street in leafy, suburban Dublin, local residents meet about a piece of graffiti.
Who did it? What does it mean? And what’s to be done about it? They have wine and a quorum. Nothing can go wrong.
This Beautiful Village is a razor-sharp new play that exposes every side of what it means to co-exist in Ireland today. Set over one night, six people will confront their pride, prejudice and privilege.
It won’t be pretty. But it could be beautiful.
