The May Queen: A Revenge Tragedy



"It's not just what he's done that makes me want to kill him. It's everything about him that makes me want to kill him. Listen to me. And me a May Queen an' all" Frank Donohue is dead. Murdered. And as the culprits bury his death in the chaos of the Blitz, Theresa Donohue prays for revenge. Revenge for her father, her brother and herself. But if vengeance is the Lord's then who will pull the trigger? The May Queen is a dark and brutal thriller set against the backdrop of wartime Merseyside. In his professional homecoming, award-winning Liverpool writer Stephen Sharkey, whose work has been produced in London and Edinburgh, brings us a story of love, family and the price of retribution. The play is a programme text produced with the Liverpool Everyman Theatre where it opens in May 2007.
