Paddy Goes to Petra
February 29 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm€13 – €15
When Paddy’s only son dies unexpectedly, his lust for life vanishes. A trip to the ancient city of Petra encourages him to feel a fresh wonder for the world, develop new friendships and an exciting love affair…with himself.
Paddy pretends to lose his passport so he can stay longer in the Middle East and thus begins a journey of recovery and renewed enthusiasm for living. How much time can he really spend away from his wife, farm and responsibilities back in Ireland, however?
This is a play about survival, strength and carrying on… New writing from Tipperary playwright Áine Ryan, previous work at The Source includes ‘Kitty in the Lane’ and ‘Up the Hill Jackie’.
