The Hall by Pat Daly
*Running time: 75 mins, with no interval*
The Hall is a new stage play by Waterford playwright Pat Daly. It's the story of Joe whose life has all but crashed beneath his feet. Determined to rebuild his life, he struggles with the day to day minutia of living in a men's hostel. Alongside the other marginalised character; Skanger JP selling drugs, failed rapper Hip Hop's agoraphobia and what seems to be an unhealthy attraction to the wagon Roisin, the hostel manager. When Joe intervenes to teach JP a tough life lesson, it starts a chain of events that are devastating for him and those around him.
The Hall is in much the same vein as Pat's previous works, tragic-comic drama. His plays Urbs Intacta Manet, Dissident, GTi and John Roberts Square played to sold out audiences in Waterford city in the recent past. His play Urbs Intacta Manet made its UK premiere in London in November 2016 under the title Rigor Mortis. The Hall is set in a fictional men's hostel located in the city, in which a number of characters cross paths. This play has been rattling around in Pat's head for a few decades and has finally found its way to the page.
