A Way To Live
A Play in 7 scenes
Gran, her daughter and two grand daughters Miriam and
Elizabeth live together in an old, poorly maintained house of faded
gentility. They keep themselves shut away from the world with only their
books and the Gay Byrne show on the radio for entertainment. Gran is the only
one who leaves the house ever since that day long ago when Elizabeth went to
the library and their lives changed for ever. Gran warns them continuously
that you can't trust anyone, even if they seem to be helpful and so she goes
once a week to collect her pension and get the groceries. But Gran falls ill
and Mama and her daughters don't know what to do. They try to continue living
the only way they know until the postmaster and the sergeant come knocking on
This is a dark play with 4 female and 2 male parts.
