SOMEONE WHO’LL WATCH OVER ME


By Frank McGuinness

Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me focuses on the trials and tribulations of an Irishman, an Englishman and an American who are kidnapped and held hostage in Lebanon.

The play emphasises the physical discomfort of its three characters. The relationships between the men run the full range of emotions: intense dislike as well as need, empathy and love, expressed in tiny gestures of physical intimacy.

A play for our times: we are witness and accomplice to a humour based on something apparently ghastly, the loss of rationality.

 

“Frank McGuinness’ 1992 play seems prescient now: its preoccupation with racial stereotypes and the mutual misunderstanding of western and Islamic cultures speaks directly to us” Helen Meany, The Guardian
