Part of a programme of events taking place across the UK for National Alcohol Awareness Week 2020.

Philip Orr’s Dean & the Devil is a melancholic monologue by school bus driver Alan who describes how his life has careered out of control and come crashing to a halt as he loses grip of his family, girlfriend, job and health. Karaoke numbers sustain the pace while some gentle humour at the start helps Trevor Gill set up the character sympathetically. In this one man show, Gill morphs into numerous other figures that Alan comes into contact with.


"I thought that people didn’t know … I was a heavy drinker … [but] everyone knew it."

First commissioned by The Hope Centre in Ballymena and first performed in Larne last October, the 40-minute play is a sobering yet unpreachy insight into the reality of alcohol addiction and its impact on the lives of those affected.

Audiences can participate in a post-show discussion and Q&A with the creative team after the performance broadcast.
