Mrs Sweeney

By Paula Meehan


Mrs. Sweeney deals with a family in the aftermath of their daughter’s death from AIDS, brought about by drug abuse. Buoyed up by laughter and grief, Lil Sweeney gathers her friends round her and copes, while her husband retreats more and more into a private world obsessed by pigeons. The play charts the disintegration of the family home in the face of insurmountable odds.
