The Five Lamps by Roddy Doyle. Play adapted by Joe O'Byrne

The Five Lamps by Roddy Doyle

An adaption for the stage of the short story by Roddy Doyle called “The Five Lamps”, directed by Joe O’Byrne.

“The Five Lamps” is a story by Roddy Doyle from the ‘Life Without Children’ collection. It takes place just after the beginning of the Covid lockdown, and is about a man who makes the irrational decision to come to Dublin to look for his son, who he has not seen in four years. His search takes him on an odyssey through inner city Dublin, and small acts of kindness light up his search as he hopes against hope to find his son in the deserted city. The story is a gentle hymn to the inner city. As in all of Roddy Doyle’s writing about Dublin, his stories explore the humour and emotions of people on the edge, and “The Five Lamps” becomes a truly life-affirming story.
