Padraic Lillis

Published by Dramatists Play Service

2 Male 1 Female

Two brothers, Michael and Paul, return to their childhood home after their mother's funeral

There, they confront deep-seated issues and Sue, their mother's surviving lover

Anne, the boys' mother, had kept her two lives as separate as possible to make things easier on everyone, including herself

What looks to become a fight over who gets the house becomes a more poignant battle over where each person stood in the life of their deceased loved one

The play examines the characters' relationships from every possible angle, with plenty of angst expressed in the proceedings, and a healthy dose of humor

An affecting and resonant drama, Two Thirds Home explores the ways in which sharing secrets can both create and destroy intimacy

REVIEWS

"This consistently challenging play speaks not just to the issue at hand but as well to the human need to look at drama as a means of understanding and contextualizing experiences ... Lillis' ear for dialogue and understanding of the myriad ways sibling rivalry plays out in adults is consistently engaging" ~ Gay City News
