OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Paul Mercier 

  • Synopsis

    Wasters tells the story of six disenchanted and disaffected young Dubliners who spend a night drinking together on a waste ground on the edge of a corporation housing estate. Bonzo, the one who got away to work on a building-site in Islington, is back for a weekend and wants to party. He left unexpectedly and has returned the same way, only now he is trying to convince himself that all has changed for the better. His old friends re-unite for one last get together. Feelings run deep. There are scores to settle. There are wounds to heal. And there are games to play.
