Best Man (Methuen Drama)by Carmel Winters
Synopses & Reviews
This bold new play from award-winning playwright Carmel Winters deals with the near-taboo topics of sex, power and parentage within modern relationships. Set in the intoxicating height of the boom and, finally, the sober fall of the bust, Best Man prompts a public reckoning of our most private struggles as questions of power within the family are examined with scorching insight.
Following the nationwide success of the high-profile B for Baby tour by the Abbey Theatre, this world premiere is the second major work from one of Ireland's most exciting writers.
Best Man will run at the Everyman, Cork from 21 - 29 June and then at the Project Arts Centre, Dublin, from 16 - 27 July.
