“The Trappe Family” is a comedy by Leitrim native and multi-award winning playwright Seamus O’Rourke and directed by award-winning director Sean Byrne.
The play is set in a small town in County Leitrim. The Trappe Family gather on the roof of their garage each year to commemorate and celebrate the life of ‘Daddy’ who passed away five years ago. Daddy was a larger than life character, well liked by everyone in the town, a part time garage owner and part time stand up comedian who lost touch with his family and reality many years ago.
Freddie Trappe has taken over the garage, the stand up routine and Daddy’s slim grip on reality. Mammy brings the family together on the anniversary to remember, say a few prayers and tell nice stories about Daddy but there is a darker side to the family that is slowly revealed. Mammy is a cripple, so how does she get onto the roof without any help? How did Daddy actually die? Why is Joseph so bitter? Who or what is ‘The White Angel’? Patrick has always been considered “slow”, but is there something else about him, something sinister? Can Majella keep everyone from hurting each other both physically and mentally?
It’s the story of a typical Irish family with all the comedy and tragedy that is such an essential part of Irish life. We all know families like this.
Don’t miss this great production, running from April 8th to April 17th with a matinee on Sunday, April 11th at the Irish Club of WA, Subiaco.
