Home in Three Plays: Cashin Avenue, Cookstown, and Bowring Park. Written by Darren Ivany
Cashin Avenue is the story of a last chance conversation between two underclass lovers, both of whom are desperate for something they’ve never had: Home. When what ‘home’ means to each of them threatens to deepen a divide that’s been growing for years, one of the lovers goes too far in his hunt for a happily ever after. Sardonic, but not without sentiment, Cashin Avenue confronts the audience with a relationship nearing the end of its rope.
Cookstown: Wearing his best balaclava and prowling outside the Peter E is Jimmy. He’s not a bad fella, but he is hard up for a smoke — along with anything else you got handy. Cookstown is the classic tale of someone wanting what somebody else got. It’s a robbery gone right on the streets of St. John’s City.
Bowring Park: With one day left, it’s now or never for Johnny Eddie and Mikey Mickey. Danger lurks in the duck pond and a murderous swan stands to illustrate the absurd lens through which our ill fated pair perceive the world, its laws, and what we all need to survive.
