Brutality. Fear. Self-loathing. A need to belong. The plays in O'Connell's Street Trilogy portray the vulnerable and the violent as they lash out against the world around them. From the adrenaline-fuelled anarchy of a car theft and the ritualised violence of teenage gangs, to the new beginning offered by a baby in the womb, life on the dirty side of the tracks is shown without compromise or sentimentality. The characters lurch between hope and despair, giving voice to the trials of change through verbal pyrotechnics and acts of sudden aggression.
Street Trilogy was performed at the Pleasance Theatre, Edinburgh in 2003.
