In His Wake

Beckenham Theatre proudly presents a World Premiere of an Irish Black comedy, written and directed by Wayne Sheridan

In His Wake will be BTC’s entry into the 2020 Kent Drama Association Festival

Performance dates:

Tuesday 18th to Saturday 22nd February 2020 at 8:00pm

In His Wake is a black comedy about death, Irish tradition and how blood, whether you like it or not, is thicker than water. It follows the three estranged Dublin-born Shannon brothers who are coming together for their father’s wake following many years apart. Fuelled by lies, resentment and a few pints of “Porter”, they revisit events from their youth and realise they all have very different views about the kind of man their father was.

Throughout the wake they are visited by the indomitable Mrs Boland AKA “The Corporal”, their father’s opinionated neighbour and self-appointed leader of the local community. She has seen all three of the brothers grow up and has witnessed their father grow with them.

Set against the backdrop of JFK’s iconic visit to Ireland in 1963, the play explores what shapes our identity. Are we products of our family, our genes, our religion, our community or even our national identity?

Cast:

David: Joshua Lawson.

Paddy: Chris Learmonth.

Christie: Wayne Sheridan.

The Corporal: Alison Driscoll.

Shaun: Mark King.
