If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You - a funny, romantic, bleak, quirky, irreverent and refreshing joy @OneDuckTheatre #CocainePlay @johneodonovan, @tjamesmartin @VAULTFestival @thevaultsuk ...

Last Sunday night Stuart and I went to watch John O’Donovan's marvellous two-hander If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You at The Vaults in (or rather under) London's glitzy Waterloo.

Set in a small town in the west of Ireland on Halloween - it is a night of drug-fuelled robbery and surprisingly tender romance. There’s a party to get to and Mikey and Casey have everything they need... booze, cash, drugs... and each other.

Only there's a problem. They’re stuck. On a roof. And as they wait for the police to move off, they find out there are some home truths you can’t climb down from.

It's a raucous and unlikely romantic drama, packed with bleak humour, fizzing with comic timing - all twenty feet up.

Alan Mahon and Josh Williams play two lovers and their dialogue pops and crackles with rude affection. The whole piece is a funny, quirky, irreverent and a refreshing joy.

Go see.
