St Petersburg and Other Plays

St Petersburg / Limbo / Catherine Medbh

Declan Feenan
 
These three plays announce the arrival of a very special playwriting talent. 

St Petersburg
The longest of the three - atmospheric and elliptical. It comprises three scenes involving three characters, an old man, his middle-aged daughter, and a ten-year-old girl boy. 

Limbo
A monologue - a 17-year-old girl tells us the story of her relationship with an older man and what it led to. 

Catherine Medbh
A bittersweet and hesitant duologue in a bar between a youngish man and woman who are ex-lovers.

Though the spareness of the dialogue can be poetic, in Declan Feenan's writing it is what's going on under the words that carries the emotional charge. His characters talk, often quite volubly, but all we hear is the unbridgeable gap between them—and the evasions and concealments with which they live their lives.



Cast : St Petersburg - 1M, 1F (1 boy, aged 10) / Limbo - 1F / Catherine Medbh - 1M, 1F
