Albert Mooney by Richard Fitchett, 7.30pm, Monday 8 November 2021 - Upstairs at the NLT
This new play reading takes place Upstairs at the North London Tavern
Albert Mooney is a comedy drama about Tess, a feisty sixteen year old, escaping the shadow of a religion-ruled Ireland to England to have a baby, only to find that the lock of family and expectation are almost as strong as in Ireland.
The play takes place in the period 'between the end of the Chatterley ban and the Beatles first LP' (Philip Larkin) with Tess and Billy, the fifteen year old son of the house, dreaming of a world that won’t appear until the sixties kick start a new era.
Albert Mooney is a 90 minute stage play.
Richard Fitchett has had three full length fringe plays produced: the last received 5 star reviews and was nominated for a short run Offie. He has been working on several plays during the lockdown and is hoping, as theatre-land wakes up, to get plays on stage again. He has also just started an Arts Council grant application to try and stage a play about Lord Haw-Haw.
During lockdown we took our regular Monday night events online.
The online events proved a success and so for this coming season we are going alternate between live events at our old home, Upstairs at the North London Tavern, and online via Zoom.
