    THE BENCH: A TALE FROM PARADISE HEIGHTS

    Written & Directed by Joe O’Byrne

    Strictly Adults Only! 

    It’s just a bench in the park, the one by the war memorial. A thief, a fake clairvoyant, a homeless man, two burglars, a street sweeper, two war veterans, an artist, a widow, a drug dealer, a real clairvoyant, a loan shark, an angel and a ghost. They’ve all sat here at least once this year.

    Before the end of the year one of them will be murdered here…

    16 characters, played by 6 actors, 1 bench, 1 war memorial, 1 bin, 12 scenes, 12 months but it all adds up to so much more.

    A comedy of love, life and loss.

    Strictly Adults Only! 

    Warning: Tales from Paradise Heights is highly addictive substance.

    Reviews:

    Entirely gripping, utterly enthralling. A play like Joe O’Byrne’s comes along to remind us all what really matters Steve Balshaw, Grimmfest

    Loved it! Wonderful gags out of left field, intrigue, suspense, heart-rending scenes and heartwarming moments. A great night of theatre!
    Do more! David Slack, Manchester 24/7 Theatre Festival

    The cast are brilliant, costume and accent changes are amazing – in the blink of an eye they are someone different. This show enchants you, thrills you and will break your heart.  John Kristof, Number9Reviews

    Like Jim Cartwright, O’Byrne has a knack of finding poetry in the most ordinary situations; he also has real affection for his characters, and they feel like flesh and blood people.

    Steve Timms, Whatsonstage.com

    The quality of production and script we would expect to see on the main stages of our region’s theatres David Chadderton, British Theatre Guide

    Highly recommended and a play and writer that will surely go on to greater things

    Kevin Bourke, Manchester Evening News

    When are TV commissioners going to wake up and find Joe O’Byrne?
