This play has had great reviews and Irish Theatre Magazine said: “A brave and stirring piece of theatre… marvellously engaging.”
Culture NI raved it was: “Funny, fast-paced and unexpectedly poignant.”
Main in the Monn is a comedic rollercoaster with a dark twist. It is the tender story of one man’s resolve to overcome everything that life has to throw at him.
Sean Doran hasn’t had the best of luck. He’s been sacked from his job, his girlfriend and child have left him and he’s back living in his ma’s house… if this child bought a duck, it would drown!
Alone with a carryout at the Half Moon Lake, Sean reflects on his life so far as he tries to make sense of it all. Over the course of one moonlit evening he takes us on a soul-searching journey through life, love and death, via his past, present and future.
