Coolatully

Synopsis:
Life isn't easy Kilian Og. It tests us. Always has, always will. And not everyone gets a pass. Leave Coolatully boy. Before its too late.Kilian was once Coolatully's pride and joy, its champion on the hurling field. Now the village can't muster a team, the country's shutting down, and Eilish wants to leave for a new life across the ocean. And this is 2014. As Irish history repeats itself, Kilian must confront the demons of the past and decide whether to stay or go forever. The winner of the sixth Papatango New Writing Prize, Coolatully shines a light on modern rural Ireland, where suicide rates among young men are the fourth highest in the world, asking whether a generation can be saved. Since the countrys plunge into recession, Ireland has experienced levels of emigration and suicide unparalleled in Europe, with young men particularly affected. Lyrical, compassionate and urgent, Fiona Doyles first play is an astonishing insight into the links between the economy, masculinity and society in the modern world.
