The Walls


  • Playwright

    Colin Teevan 

  • Synopsis

    Dublin, the night before Christmas and Mr and Mrs Walls are preparing for the arrival of their son Joseph and his new bride, Mary. But all is not as it seems for Mrs Walls' happy family. She's afraid she's been watched, whilst all around there's distressing talk of hobby horses, prawn wontons and underpants. The Walls examines the gradual disintegration of a house, a family and their favourite song.
