The Empty Nest by Oisín Flores Sweeney

Tony and Sheila are watching television, again. Their children are grown and their grandchildren are invading their lives. Sheila wants to travel; Tony is determined to stay put. Tony is on a new diet; Sheila could cut you in two with a sharp comment. All that is on the television is sex… and they can’t remember when they did it last!

Knee deep in hilarity and insight, this sharply astute debut play from Oisín Sweeney explores the struggle of establishing a new normal when life undergoes major change. Made harder when you discover that the old normal wasn’t quite what you thought it was in the first place – Gogglebox on speed!
