Put two men on a train and give them a bottle of whiskey and fairly soon some deeply held secrets will come to the surface. That's the premise of Last Train From Holyhead, a new production by Out of Time Theatre Company showing soon at the Teachers Club on Parnell Square, Dublin 1.
It's the company's second production, after debuting with Brian Friel's Living Quarters at the Draíocht Arts Centre in Blanchardstown, last month. Their new show, written by Bernard Field, stars Dave Duffy (Fair City), Stephen Gorman (Leap Year) and Deirdre Jones (Ripper Street). There have been a number of previous iterations of this work, with each being received to high acclaim, so this production, directed by Blayne Kelly, will be eagerly awaited. With the help of drink, poker and a beguiling gypsy, the two central characters encounter the void within each-other, by looking through the lives of the other. Drink, cards and prophecy, not to mention comedy and tragedy, pervade this intriguing piece of theatre which examines identity and how seeds sown in the past have a habit of sprouting, whether we like it or not.
Out of Time Theatre Company is a new company founded in early 2011 by actor and producer Deirdre Jones (who also stars here), with the purpose of showcasing new acting and writing talent, and performing lesser-known works from long-established playwrights.
