2020 Visions:

A love story told over sixty years

In 2020 Visions, Paddy Gormley's play for audio, stage and screen, Alec, aged 80 in the year 2020, reflects on the three love affairs that shaped his life, in 1960, 1980 and 2000.  As his thoughts travel backwards and forwards in time, his younger selves and his lovers come to life and act out their stories.   The play is written in "proseverse": Paddy Gormley's unique style of writing that flows as naturally as prose but is based on intricate verse patterns.
