A PLAY + A PINT: Reading Series
ABOUT THE PLAY:
On March 1st, OPFT will be reading the first section of Lovers, titled “Winners” which follows the story of two teenaged lovers, Joseph Michael Brennan & Margaret Mary Enright – more commonly known as Joe and Mag respectively – who are expecting a baby. However, the pregnancy occurs out of wedlock which, at the time of Lovers being written, was a major issue. Due to Mag falling pregnant with Joe’s baby they are both asked to leave their schools out of disgrace for what they have done. In the play we find out that Joe’s mother pleaded with the school to let Joe sit his exams, this is a very important theme as Joe – being the man – is expected to go, find work and provide for his family
