    About

    Des is turning 21 and is about to throw the party to end all parties… literally. After all, he’s making that fateful transition into adulthood and so playtime must come to an end. Mustn’t it? What place do dreams, hopes and happiness hold in the face of ‘real life’?

    In this coming of age tragi-comedy, these occasionally vivacious, often morose, always droll Dublin youths wrestle with their ambitions, gender roles, uncertain futures, but most of all, with themselves. Director Evan Lordan’s production mines Mary Manning’s evocative state of the nation satire, as much as it does the lives of the cast, whose collective experiences provide the fuel, vitality and urgency to our story.

    Emerging from Ireland during one of its most thrilling theatrical and literary periods, Manning – a close friend of Samuel Beckett, who suggested the confounding question mark at the end of the play’s title – is one of the country’s most exceptional, yet underappreciated playwrights, as evidenced by this witty, wild and ultimately shocking tale.


    Youth’s the Season… ? is performed by graduating students of Bristol School of Acting.
