About the show

Locked in the Attic Productions brings back this evening of one-act plays by Seanie Sugrue exploring the question of whether love is dead. For mature audiences only. More…

Act 1: 'The Apple and the Tree!' drags through the meager life of Trevor. A young man burdened with the seemingly impossible task of convincing his relations that he has been raped—by two women.

Act 3: 'My Goldfish Loves Me but I Hate Your Guts!' ambles recklessly through a sinuous account of the life and misery of Maggie, an unhinged prostitute looking for retribution.

While some are fantast...
