You only get a few goes. At life. You don’t get endless goes.

Tommy rents a rundown, junk filled room in his uncle Maurice’s house in Dublin. He scrapes a living doing odd jobs with his sidekick, Doc. When Aimee enters his life by a chance encounter, she brings her own problems, particularly when Kenneth turns up. Life then begins to change for all the characters. 

The Night Alive premiered in London in 2013 and transferred to New York where it won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
