Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me

By Frank McGuinness

Town and Gown Pub & Theatre, Cambridge, 12 – 13 May 2022

“I’m warning you, don’t weep. That’s what they want. So don’t cry. Laugh. Do you hear me? Laugh.”

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. An Englishman, an Irishman, and an American… are locked in a bare cell, political prisoners captured by Lebanese terrorists. Over time, the three men overcome their personal, cultural and religious differences to lean on each other in order to attempt to survive their horrific ordeal with their minds intact.

Based on a true story, this play by classic Irish playwright Frank McGuinness celebrates the strength of the human spirit and the power of laughter in the face of oppression.

This amateur production of “Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

Funny, moving, beautifully acted and beautifully directed.
