Savoy

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Eugene O'Brien 

  • Setting

    The play is set in the Savoy Cinema, Edenderry in 1994.

  • Synopsis

    On the closing night of Edenderry's Savoy cinema, three men have gathered for an unusual wake to remember the life of the cinema and its place in their lives. From the spectre of the multiplex that has sounded the death knell of the local cinema, to the town's inhabitants and A Fistful of Dollars, O'Brien creates a picture of the life of a provincial town. By turns comical and elegiac, the men's shared memories finally expose the fiction and frailty that lie at the heart of their relationships.
