Missing Persons

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Colin Teevan 

  • Synopsis

    Five contemporary monologues drawn from Greek myths. In The Bull, a man who, as a child, was abused by his father fantasises about castrating him. In The One Within, the narrator describes the descent into madness of an IRA colleague after the ceasefire. Somedays is a love story based on Ariadne's unrequited love for Theseus. In The Last Word, the story of Medea murdering her children is transposed to a modern setting, with the abandoned husband of an ambitious wife committing familicide. In The Roykeaneiad, a football supporter parallels Roy Keane's confrontation with his manager, Mick McCarthy, prior to the 2002 World Cup with King Agamemnon's clashes with is ace warrior Achilles.
