In The Night Alive, Tommy is a down-on-his-luck Irish bloke who finds that his one good deed will not go unpunished. A slovenly sort who's taken up residence in his uncle's Dublin house, Tommy and his best friend Doc have eked out an existence running odd jobs and plotting get-rich-quick schemes. But when he returns one night after rescuing battered and bloodied prostitute Aimee, his spontaneous act of decency brings about a glimmer of new possibilities, even as echoes from the past and the looming specter of death threaten to take it all away. Warm, wistfully funny and magical in spite of its meager surroundings, Irish playwright Conor McPherson's The Night Alive observes the small moments of grace that illuminate our lives and deliver us from the darkness.
