Pentecost

Lalor Roddy PENTECOSTBy Stewart Parker

October/November 1994

Set in 1974, four friends shelter together from the storm of the Ulster Workers Strike in a tiny terraced house in working class Belfast. In an attempt to avoid facing the turmoil of the city outside, they end up comforting each other as each of them exorcises their own ghosts of the past. In stunning shifts of mood, black humour and overwhelming intimacy, Pentecost speaks to the present through a form of heightened realism that delivers not only hope for the spiritually wounded in the play but for a city divided by the spirits of the past.
