Deep Space


  • Playwright

    Alex Johnston 

  • Synopsis

    In a small Dublin bedsit, flat-mates Keith and Jaco sit and discuss life while they pursue the same girl in very different ways. Keith is an unemployed Art History graduate, hung up on gender theory and Foucault while Jaco, the more laddish of the two, is an electrician. Deep Space is a dark study of the power of love and sex amid Dublin's couch-potato classes.
