The Absence of Women

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Owen McCafferty 

  • Setting

    A homeless hostel in London, the present day.

  • Synopsis

    Gerry and Iggy face the ends of their lives in a London hostel. As they drift from present concerns – the funeral of an old drinking partner, the relative sizes of their swollen livers, tube routes, street names, God and the lure of Belfast – to remembering ghosts from long ago, we catch a poignant glimpse of what might have been.
