A Stint In Your Spotlight (2008)

A Stint in Your Spotlight

“Show-business has always been rough but Jack Harrison is washed up at the grand old age of twenty-eight. Following a brief, but illustrious career, Jack’s marriage to his wife Cristal went downhill rapidly as he descended into drug addiction trying to forget who he really wanted – Danny; a premiership footballer and love of his life.

Three years later, Jack’s career is as fractured as his relationships. The drink, drugs and the wild days are long gone and he has become a semi-recluse, living out his life quietly in his apartment until three drama students approach him, wanting to make a play about his life, about his past. Could this be what gets him back on track? Will this be the push that’s needed? And will everything be as it seems?

A Stint in Your Spotlight is funny and touching play about fame, love and playmaking by new Irish playwright, Mark Ward.”

A Stint in Your Spotlight was presented as a full-cast rehearsed reading, as part of the 2008 International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival on Sunday 18th May 2008.
