Madhouse Wed 6th Nov 2019
By Una McKevitt and PJ Gallagher.
Madhouse is based on the true life story of PJ Gallagher
Starring Katherine Lynch and Shane O’Reilly.
When Bobby was 10 years old his mother moved six men with schizophrenia into the house. Like things weren’t mad enough already.
Confronted with memories of childhood after his Da dies, Bobby’s past begins to collide with the present.
It’s raining outside and he’s stuck indoors; Ma’s restocking the industrial-sized pill cabinet, Da’s in the pub, Martin’s doing laps of the garden, Marv is missing and Mump can see a gorilla in the hall.
Following the success of its premiere at The Abbey Peacock Theatre as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2018, Madhouse comes to The Everyman.
