Pretend Sick By Michael Joe Ginnelly


The action takes place in Katie’s Living Room. Katie is mother of Mary & Sean and she is a manipulative and cunning woman. Katie pretends to be sick in a bid to keep Mary at home. Mary is very much dominated by her mother but might very well cope with this if only Martin, whom she is courting, was more spontaneous and less of a wimp. Sean is rough and self centred, yet molly-coddled by both Mary and his mother. Matt the English tourist in contrast to Martin is educated, confident and likeable but complicates the lives of Sean & Mary. Colour and fun are added in the form of newly weds Tracey & Jack who live next door. More fun and excitement are added when Sean brings home his drinking buddies Joe & Mick along with two dolly birds - Marion & Samantha.
