Ross O'Carroll-Kelly, Postcards from the Ledge

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Paul Howard 

  • Setting

    The play is set in May 2029 at 22 Glenageary Crescent, Sallynoggin, Co. Dublin.

  • Synopsis

    The year is 2029 and Ireland is in the midst of an economic boom. Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is about to turn 50 – and life could not be better for him. As the Managing Director of Hook, Lyon and Sinker estate agents, he spends most of the day with his feet up. But when a client rings and asks someone to put a valuation on 22 Glenageary Crescent, a semi-detached house in Sallynoggin, Ross decides to do the job himself. The reason is that he recognizes the address as his childhood home. As he stands in the doorway of the run-down, council-built house, the sediment of old memories is stirred up. And he takes a journey of remembrance, through happy times and sad times, laughter and tears, until he realizes that the job of putting a price on the house – and its treasure of memories – is impossible.
