Buddleia by Paul Mercier

An angry account of troubled ordinary city people trying to survive in the heart of Dublin.


Buddleia by Paul Mercier

Buddleia is a thrilling account of a troubled city at a time of great flux. First staged to great success in 1995, this revival of Paul Mercier’s contemporary classic relocates the action of the play to modern day Dublin. Reflecting a splintered society where ambition, progression and development are juxtaposed with homelessness, violence and cronyism, this epic state-of-the-nation play filters the complex story of Dublin city through the lens of a humble red-bricked terrace house.
