St. Petersburg and Other Plays



Declan Feenan


Nick Hern Books

“John, a retired lorry driver, used to drive into the frozen wastes of eastern Europe, but his relationship with his daughter, Kate, a child conceived in heat, is now blanketed by the permafrost of the past” –Guardian on St Petersburg

 

“Vivid...wonderfully lifelike...St Petersburg plays so intimately that you feel like an intruder” –The Times on St Petersburg

 

Three haunting, elliptical plays by a talented writer from Northern Ireland.

 

St Petersburg comprises three scenes involving three characters, an old man, his middle-aged daughter, and a ten-year-old boy.

 

Limbo is a monologue in which a 17-year-old girl tells us the story of her relationship with an older man and what it led to.

 

Catherine Medbh is a bittersweet and hesitant duologue in a bar between a youngish man and woman who are ex-lovers.

 

Though the sparseness of the dialogue can be poetic, in Declan Feenan’s writing it is what’s going on under the words that carries the emotional charge. His characters talk, often quite volubly, but all we hear is the unbridgeable gap between them – and the evasions and concealments with which they live their lives.
