Castles In The Air
“The specific incident around which some of the play is drawn, was inspired by the true story of Turf Lodge woman Rosaleen Nolan” Martin Lynch. A story of a family struggling with a life of poverty in a place of unemployment, poor housing, anti-social behaviour, drink, drugs and domestic abuse. Mary Fullerton has been deserted by her drunken husband, and lives in a maisonette, subsisting on Valium and Carlsberg Special. Her son Eddy is a joyrider, and only her daughter Pauline has the buoyancy to survive and save her family, but if she stays to do so she must abandon her own future. This is a Belfast of joy-riding, drug-taking, unemployment and brutality where a once-optimistic people are driven to despair. Martin Lynch is one of the most important dramatists to have emerged from the political and cultural ferment of the last forty years.
