‘It makes you lose your mind...it sits in your head and it grows...it's like that ivy...it starts small but it feeds off everything.'
Following an Arts Council funded R&D at Hope Mill Theatre in 2017 ‘One Good Night’ is back at the same venue for its highly anticipated full-length premiere.
The piece is a comic drama about the effects of female sexual assault and centres around the story of Amelia (Sammy Winward) who has been raped by her boyfriend Pete (Oliver Devoti) …or has she?
Between her, ‘goody two shoes’ friend May (Misha Duncan-Barry) and their nosy next-door neighbour Julie (Susan McArdle), Amelia is lost and confused with a blurred sense of reality.
With friendship, laugher and belief, can they overcome and have just one good night? Led by a female core creative team, writer Aisling Caffrey, director Alyx Tole and producer Alexandra Maxwell ‘One Good Night’ is an entertaining production full of dark humour.
With rehearsals aptly starting during Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week this week (3rd-9th February) it is all the more important that this production is seen and its message heard. ‘One Good Night’ will run for 5 evenings from 25th – 29th February.
Tickets now on sale.
