The Night Joe Dolan's Car Broke Down

9781911337331 HB

Since its first production in 2010 The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down has been a phenomenally popular fixture in Ireland’s theatrical calendar. On a stormy St Stephen’s Night people wait in The Glenaduff Inn to celebrate the sixtieth birthday of The Horse Munley. Some hours later a knock on the door heralds new drama, but the following morning lines blur between what actually happened and what has been imagined or wished for. With laser sharp accuracy and a perfectly tuned ear Padraic McIntyre untangles a surprising web of relationships in recent rural Ireland. In a way reminiscent of John B Keane half a century ago he has developed an audience outside the mainstream theatre. More than forty thousand people have responded and continue to return to this hilarious play.
