by Jarlath Tivnan

‘Back then I thought it was perfection. But things change. Oh yes, they do.’

A group of friends who’ve gone their separate ways meet back at their teenage haunt, the town, park and playground, known as the Pleasure Ground. The town is dying, the Pleasure Ground’s glory has faded, and life hasn’t quite matched up to youthful expectations.

Over their night together, buried secrets become unearthed, past grievances boil over, and scores are settled.

Pleasure Ground is based the decline of the rural Irish town exploring notions of home, belonging, community and change . Tivnan’s writing is witty and sharp, and captures the beauty of rural and small town life whilst exploring feelings of sadness and isolation. Fregoli are a young Galway based company formed in 2007 this is their 20th production.
