Tea and Sex and Shakespeare

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Thomas Kilroy 

  • Setting

    Mrs. O's House somewhere in Dublin.

  • Synopsis

    Tea and Sex and Shakespeare is a comedy of near despair concerning the peculiar loneliness of a writer whose imagination has turned upon him. Instead of serving his work, Brien's imagination starts to produce creatures out of the woodwork and nightmares out of Shakespeare. Suddenly the playwrights finds himself in his own play, a fantastic farce where the borderline between what is real and what is imagined dissolves, walls open up, and an old wardrobe becomes a magical box.
