In Winners we are introduced to senior school students Mag and Joe – Mag distracted by her pregnancy yet excited by the prospect of future family life with Joe. Set within a lofty mountain picnic scene, the couple discuss, distract ignore and bicker between a sinister pair of commentators who flesh out the story and shroud the picnic scene with a sense of foreboding! Like watching a relationship in utero, Friel cleverly draws in the audience through ‘innocent’ banter that probes and develops unconscious of what lies further afield!
In Losers, we meet Andy and Hannah, a recently married if somewhat unhappy couple. In this darkly comedic exploration of marriage, commitment and intimacy, Andy faces the challenges presented by pious neighbors, dependent in-laws and an uncertain new wife. Written to compliment Winners, Losers is a somewhat grim outlook of what it means to love another.
