‘Appendage’ begins with a minor traffic accident in which Jack is struck by Peter’s car. Peter takes Jack, a stranger into his home to recuperate. Jack, in no hurry to leave Peter’s wealthy American home, becomes more menacing as the evening and the alcohol progresses. Peter soon begins to fear for his life. As night takes hold, both men share the most intimate and profound of secrets, and so a strange tenuous bond develops between them, a bond that could easily spiral out of control.
A first reading of ‘Appendage’ was included in the Pic n Mix Festival 2011 which took place at The Brian Friel Theatre at Queens in association with The MAC. The company is delighted to be performing in the new building.
