There are two parts to the play Lovers: ‘Winners’ and ‘Losers’. The titles of each are significant and something that you should consider. It is important to note that Friel intended that the play be seen as a whole, rather than two separates.

The play is set in 1966 ‘The present in Ireland.’ A time when Ireland was a place of social divisions and changing identity.

The first play, Winners, tells the story of Mag and Joe. Young and in love, they spend a glorious summer’s day laughing and talking together and planning their future. But for Mag and Joe there is to be no future. The second play, Losers, tells of Hanna and Andy, a couple to whom love has come late, and for whom courting is made almost impossible by the upstairs presence of Hanna’s demanding invalid mother.”

This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd
