Inconvenient People

Inconvenient People

Written by Paul Hannah

Directed by Leah Pellinkhof and Rob Allen

Three one-act plays by Paul Hannah.

Remembering The Elephant
Jill returns home to a small town for her father’s funeral, she brings with her the terrible secret of why she left and why she could not return while her father was alive. Andy has his own resentment and anger to deal with but will that stop Jill from revealing all? Is it ever the right time for revenge and retribution? And what about the consequences?

Coasters
This play is set at a high-school reunion. Scott has an almost unhealthy obsession for Allie, a girl he last saw at school twenty years ago. He finally gets up the courage to tell her how he feels – but how will she react? What interests Paul about these people is their reactions to having an obviously intense shared past and then a long interval before the present day. Have they grown apart or just grown up? Allie wonders if she is being stalked and Scott wonders if he will finally get the girl – even if she is now a woman.

Inconvenient People
When a woman walks into lawyer Kim Colley’s office seeking help with her husband’s will, he has no idea of the events that cascade from it. This chance meeting provides him with a way out of his current mess, but is it the way out he expects? Black comedies are Paul’s favourite plays, building on some of the themes of “Tuesdays are for Bill” – Paul’s most performed play, Inconvenient People looks deeper at the framework of morality which guides our lives.
