Here We Are Again Still


  • Playwright

    Christian O'Reilly (1) 

  • Setting

    An urban landscape at the edge of football pitches, the present day.

  • Synopsis

    Paddy sits on the same bench outside his flat every night, unable to sleep since the death of his wife. His elderly neighbour Imelda does her best to drive him indoors, but there’s no talking to him. Then one day Paddy is annoyed to find a troubled young man called Tony sitting on his bench… Based on the real-life stories of the residents of Walter Macken Place in Galway City, 'Here We Are Again Still' tells the story of three people and their various experiences of personal and community life in the flats.
