God, this post title belongs in a newspaper column. I’m so witty and hip and with it at times. Second City Trilogy too is witty and on the pulse and garnished with wonderful imagery of Cork and its culture.
So, what is Second City Trilogy? 3 short(30mins or so) plays about Cork people and referencing Cork life. Superb acting, good writing, nice fusion of comedy and drama. Uses Cork as a background and includes all the usual slang and local history without doing a Gift Grub style stereotype of Cork life.
Only drawback was the seats in the half moon were crap and it was very warm in there. Still it was only a small hardship to see this trilogy.
There’s a review of it by the Examiner here. My review is less pretentious, not for want of trying. 🙂
