Lex Talionis (A Tale Of Vengeance & Feathers) - Presented by The Everyman in association with Wandering Star
The Everyman in association with Wandering Star presents a rehearsed reading of Lex Talionis (A Tale of Vengeance & Feathers) by Liam Heylin, as part of Play It by Ear, a programme of shows live for The Everyman stage available via live audio broadcast.
‘If I told ya to jump off a buildin’ would ya?’
‘That’s different, we’re jumpin’ off buildin’s all day long!’
Hugh’s a rook with chicks comin’. Mooney’s a younger rook whose new friend Max is not what they seem. Dónie’s a magpie, he’s bad news. After a vicious murder, one of them is out for blood. There will be vengeance.
That’s what the weird Latin title means – the law of retaliation, an eye for an eye, like.
From the seriously funny Liam Heylin (Love, Peace and Robbery, Hung Juror), comes a play about savage craic on the streets of Cork.
