The Last Return

The Last Return

by Sonya Kelly

“I do not organise the ticket queue, it is up to the people in the ticket queue to organise themselves. Have I made myself clear?”

Finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize 2022

One final night. One last chance. Five people queue for a ticket to the hottest show in town. All they must do is simply wait in line. But what in life is ever simple?

Who will triumph, who will fail, and who will walk away with… The Last Return?

A new play by acclaimed playwright Sonya Kelly (Once Upon a BridgeFurniture), The Last Return is a thrilling comedy about conflict, peace and the pursuit of territory at any cost.

This edition was published to coincide with the premiere by Druid Theatre, Galway, in July 2022.
