It's Not Easy @ The Viking Theatre
'It's Not Easy' written and directed by Gary Brown, starring Gary Cooke, Andrew Murray and Liam Heslin.
Pat Brophy and Johnny Murtagh are two Dubliners, long-time friends and drinking buddies. The snug of Doyle’s bar is their inner sanctum where they catch up on an all too regular basis to discuss their lives, their families, their financial worries and their future.
Unexpectedly their cosy environment is disturbed by the sudden arrival of a young stranger from England. This young and mysterious stranger PJ Buckingham has left his stag party in Temple Bar to find something. Something that will put some meaning back into his life.
Can Pat and Johnny deal with the arrival of this stranger into their midst or will it put their lives into an unexpected spin of opportunity or regret? What secrets are Pat and Johnny keeping from the world and themselves that only young PJ Buckingham can unlock?
It’s Not Easy is a witty and dark comedy with a social commentary that forces its characters and its audience to confront some uncomfortable issues with edginess, humour and pathos. It runs at the Viking Theatre from Monday, November 18th to Saturday, November 30th.
This is the second play by Gary Brown a native Dubliner with a life long career in Advertising and Marketing. His first play was “Back Live”
