Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me
by Frank McGuinness
We are in a decidedly perilous position, to put it mildly.’
Adam, an American doctor, Edward, an Irish journalist and Michael, an English academic, have little to unite them beyond being human in the same small space. Yet somehow, together, they determine to ward off madness and forestall despair.
Somewhere lurk their unseen captors yet, in the cell, there are stories of adventure and love, there is song and laughter, and even a surge of writing, cocktail-drinking and movie-making.
Inspired by the abduction of Brian Keenan – taken hostage in Lebanon in the 1980s – Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me is playwright Frank McGuinness’s hymn to the defiant power of the human spirit and the creative imagination.
