The Everyman, in association with Irishtown Productions, presented a rehearsed reading of Second City Trilogy: After Luke, by Cónal Creedon, as part of Play It by Ear, a programme of shows for The Everyman stage and available on live audio broadcast.
The trilogy comprises of three stage plays (The Cure, When I Was God and After Luke) conceived as a tragicomic exploration of various father-son relationships, set against the social, historical and topographical background of Cork City.
The third and final play in Cónal Creedon’s Second City Trilogy is inspired by the parable of the Prodigal Son, in St. Luke’s Gospel. It explores greed-driven frenzy surrounding the property market at the height of the Celtic Tiger economy. The action unfolds in that contentious place where concrete and asphalt meet pasture and stone and urban necessity collides with the rural idyll – with devastatingly tragic consequences.
