PREVIEW: If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You, Vault Festival

John O’Donovan’s romantic drama returns to play at this year’s Vault Festival from the 14th to the 25th February. 

A small town in the West of Ireland. Halloween. There’s a party to get to and Mikey and Casey have everything they need…. Booze. Cash. Drugs. Each other.

The only problem is they’re stuck. Stuck on a roof. Stuck together. And as they wait for the guards to stop circling the house, they find out there are some truths you can’t climb down from.

This Offie-nominated show is directed by Thomas Martin and stars Josh Williams and Alan Mahon in this exploration of how people find love and kindness – despite oppression getting in the way.

Talking about the play writer John O’Donovan said: “It seemed significant to me that these characters that many see as lowlifes were being raised up, and from there could see further than most but now had no way of accessing the paths they could see. That seemed to me a good metaphor for what it was like to grow up poor, to always be at risk of being left behind by people who can routinely afford to go on to better things. You see them succeeding, but you’ve no idea how to get going on the path they took.”

Alan Mahon was most recently seen in in Brutal Cessation at the Edinburgh Fringe and Hamlet at the Tobacco Factory will return to the role of Mikey, for which he received an Off West End Award nomination for Best Male Performance. Meanwhile, joining the cast in the role of Casey is Josh Williams (One Night In Miami, Donmar Warehouse; Barbarians, Found 111; Wendy and Peter, RSC and Love and Information, Royal Court).

The production features designs by Georgia de Grey, lighting by Derek Anderson and sound design and composition by Jon McLeod.

If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You will play as part of the Vault Festival from the 14th until the 25th February. For more information and to book tickets visit:
