ABOUT THE PLAY

Pints pounded. Pills popped. Friendship tested.
Two clubbers on the run from the "demolition wake" being held in Ballymun as the first of the housing towers come down are at the centre of Danny and Chantelle (Still Here), a play that offer close-up insight into the everyday business of "going out and getting trashed."
