Beezneez Theatre Company brings its spanking brand new production Scorpion to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Tuesday, February 26 at 8pm.
Scorpion (A Sting in the Tale), John McDwyer’s latest play which was described as “a searing, honest appraisal of life at the end of the Celtic Tiger”. Three sales managers meet in their sales director’s office, ostensibly to meet their new managing director but, in fact, to meet their future. For some, that is more promising than for others. As they await their call, they ‘bat the breeze’ and in scenes rich in uncompromising dialogue they fight for position and score points on one another without fear or favour. Written by the Beezneez artistic director, McDwyer pulls no punches with his dialogue in this important new work and, while full of witty comment and sparkling one-liners, Scorpion ultimately delivers “a bang up to date commentary on the state of Ireland in the current climate” and presents the audience with identifiable characters who will remain in the memory long after the show is over.
