Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me (NI Zone Festival – Rivercity Stage)
Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me by Frank McGuiness
Portal Players Dramatic Society – Port Alberni
An American doctor and an Irish journalist are being held captive by terrorists in Beirut. They exercise and argue, supportive in their mutual determination to survive. They are joined by an English academic. The three display their national biases and prejudices, which are intensified in the cramped confines of their cell. They learn that humor is their surest weapon against their captors and the safest armor to protect themselves. They laugh with and at each other, and learn to lament what they lost in their lives before captivity. Each comes to know himself through listening to the stiries, sorrows, and joys of the others. At the end of the play, they are capable of standing together and alone.
Warning: Adult themes and language.
Tickets: $20 (+applicable taxes and fees)
