Take Me Away

Take Me Away $14.99

Gerald Murphy

Published by Nick Hern Books

An Edinburgh Festival 2004 showcase at the Traverse Theatre and a Fringe First for this brilliant black comedy, first seen in Dublin in Feb 2004 ...

In a dysfunctional family where no-one seems to like each other very much, a father tries to persuade his three grown-up sons to visit their mother

He claims she's in hospital, but they're not so sure. In fact, the true circumstances of each of their lives become ever more murky

'Hugely entertaining and utterly convincing ... when writing is as good as Take Me Away you're swept along' ~ The Irish Examiner

'Excellent ... A very promising debut' ~ Guardian

'I suppose what one is always looking for on the Fringe is the distinctive new voice ... They crop up infrequently, and when you hit on one, the excitement is palpable. Gerald Murphy strikes me as being just such a dramatist ... Take Me Away ... is a cracker, at once wildly funny and desperately bleak ... I await Murphy's next play with considerable impatience' ~ Daily Telegraph

'ferociously funny ... laugh till it hurts' ~ Times
