Past Tents: a hilarious 5-star rated, dark and moving comedy
**** “’Past Tents’ is a play that deserves to tour nationwide, it is accessible but leaves you with something to discuss over a drink. It is easy to see why Keogh and Jones are award winning writers and their work demands a wider audience. An absolutely stunning piece of theatre. “
Multi-Award winning writer/actors DAVID J. KEOGH (Journey’s End, Vengeance: The Demise Of Oscar Wilde) and SETH JONES (Clouds Of Grey, Someone Like You) are proud to announce a new run of their new comedy, PAST TENTS, also starring MARK KEEGAN (The Windsors, The Grey Room).
When Alan’s (Seth Jones) car crashes in the middle of nowhere, he hopes his bad day (which started with his wife leaving him) can’t get any worse… and of course it does. After trudging through the muddy countryside, he comes across a campsite, run by the rather eccentric Virgil (Mark Keegan). With no other options and no signal on his phone, he has no choice but to stay the night. Unfortunately for Alan, there’s only one plot left, situated in-between a doggy-poo bin and the rather annoying Justin (David J. Keogh).
Justin is everything Alan despises – a positive family man with his life completely in control… or is he? Because things are not what they seem and as the tension builds between the men, they start to reveal their true selves… with hilarious and rather unfortunate consequences.
‘Past Tents’ is the story of two desperate people at the end of their tent ropes, forced into each other’s company. Will they end up finding redemption or will they end up killing each other first?
A classic comedy from the team that brought you the comedies, ‘Welcome To The Fringe’ and ‘Someone Like You’. Past Tents is a surprise package of a play that will make you laugh, cry and give you the best night out since that time when you were seventeen and Suzy Flannagan said you had nice hair – Or your money not back.
