This week’s reading is a play by a new ScriptTank member Seán Muircheartach.

After years on the road as a backpacker Connor has unexpectedly turned up at his elder sister’s flat in London. No longer the inexperienced youth from when he left, Connor has had plenty of time to discover himself and wants to settle back and reconnect with his family.

The only problem is that includes his estranged father – an angry Irishman and an ex-alcoholic – against the advice of the domineering sister Bridget. Connor has to decide to confront his past but also his present. Has he made the right decision coming back and why did he return from his travels? Will it be ever be happy families?

The evening starts at 6:45 for 7:00 at the Blue Posts pub, Rupert Street, for this reading. The nearest tubes are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.
