Summary

The 'pugnaciously funny' debut play by Scottish writer/actor Paul Higgins looking at religion, booze and gambling in one dysfunctional Scottish Catholic family

Nobody Will Ever Forgive Us Summary

Nobody Will Ever Forgive Us by Paul Higgins

Patrick comes home unexpectedly from the seminary and older brother Johnny's not slow to tap him for money. Mum is suspicious, Dad seems indifferent, and pissed, and little sister Cath is distracted and medicated. Nobody Will Ever Forgive Us is the story of a family under siege. Living on their wits and stalked by violence, they defend themselves with the blackest of humour. The play was produced as part of the National Theatre of Scotland/Traverse Theatre's Debuts season and premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in November 2008. 'A keen sense of theatrical dynamics, vigorous dialogue and ready wit.' Guardian

Nobody Will Ever Forgive Us Reviews

'[Higgins's] language, in this bleak comedy about a dysfunctional working-class family on the cusp of meltdown, is driven, argumentative and brutal.' Guardian, (24 November 2008) 'Nobody Will Ever Forgive Us is pugnaciously funny.' Guardian, (24 November 2008) 'Alcohol, religion, socialist rhetoric, gambling problems and familial disharmony are all here, but they come together with purpose, honesty and the vividness of first-hand experience to offer real insight into what it is to grow up in a working-class, Catholic Scots family.' Financial Times, (26 November 2008) 'This is a fine debut from Higgins and a decent bit of theatre all round.' The Times, (28 November 2008)
