Language Roulette


  • Playwright

    Daragh Carville 

  • Setting

    Belfast, October 1994, during the cease-fire.

  • Synopsis

    A fast-talking pithy drama set on Pound a Pint night as Ulster celebrates the first IRA ceasefire. Brought together by a homecoming, a night out for a group of friends, old and new, turns increasingly edgy as simple party games turn into a deadly serious no-holds-barred session of Truth or Dare.
