Hawk’s Well The­atre, Sligo The suitor in Philip Ri­d­ley’s play ad­dresses the ob­ject of his af­fec­tions and fan­ta­sises about push­ing a bul­let be­tween her lips. “Gen­tly,” he as­sures her. “I wouldn’t break a sin­gle tooth.” She, in turn, is cap­ti­vated by his eyes and speaks softly of pry­ing them out with a spoon. Their woo­ing is both pun­gent and po­etic, but you wouldn’t ex­actly con­fuse it with Shake­speare. Let’s hope they never com­pare each other to a sum­mer’s day. They are more leery and in­tem­per­ate.

(students Mon-Thurs 01-8744045 gateth­e­atre.ie Hell Lay Be­neath with di­rec­tor Marc Atkin­son’s stag­ing of a typ­i­cally warped Ri­d­ley fairy­tale. As a film-maker and the­atre maker, the East End Lon­don writer has writ­ten for both adults and chil­dren, serv­ing up di­a­logue for char­ac­ters as dis­parate as the Kray broth­ers and Poppy Pick­le­sticks.

Ri­d­ley tends to com­bine the sweet and sour in un­usual ways. Here he con­structs a re­la­tion­ship whose fan­tasies – in­volv­ing a desert is­land, var­i­ous po­lit­i­cal up­heavals and mu­ti­la­tions – al­lude to more patho­log­i­cal and univer­sal re­al­i­ties. As the Ed­ward Al­bee-style fun and games fold back, deeper trau­mas flicker, but so does some­thing more car­ing. Even the black­est hearts keep the beat. Qui­etly Cel­e­brated North­ern Ir­ish writer Owen Mc­Caf­ferty makes his Abbey de­but with this world pre­miere, di­rected by Jimmy Fay.
