His name is Willy. He is a 54 year old tradesman. He has a bad back and a short fuse. He likes a pint of black and he tends to lose more than he wins when it comes to gambling. His hands are sore. They are calloused and dry and he is sick of standing. Running low on brass coins, dreaming of dimes and dollar bill signs – is there someone to blame? Or is this just the name of the game? In a country full of vacant spaces, empty places and ghost estates, Death of the Tradesmen is a new play about an army of men and the live register. Death of the Tradesmen was developed as part of the TITLE Residency at Solstice and the Cork Midsummer Festival. Made with Rough Magic Production Support and kindly supported by the Arts Council.
Shaun Dunne may be the voice of his generation. Here he looks to give voice to another — Róise.
