Irene’s Wish is a tale of two unlikely battlers forced together through circumstance.
Irene is a feisty 70-year-old alcoholic. Her home care nurse Stuart is fighting his own battles, with a crippling debt and the consequences of bad life decisions. Add her anxious and suspicious daughter Julie into the mix and the play draws to a compelling conclusion. When the odds are stacked against you, a friend in need may be a friend indeed. The play was workshopped at the Street Theatre in 2018 as part of their First Seen program.
