The Mercy Seat

Thanks to Mike I got wind of this little gem which had its last night in the Swift tonight. So the Mercy Seat ... well wow I really liked it, it is set on the morning after 9th of September 2001 in an apartment, a couple of blocks from the World Trade Center with two characters. Ben Harcourt and Amy Prescott, a sofa, some interesting soundscapes and some decent lighting. Ben was visiting his boss and mistress Amy on that faithful morning and engaging in some extra curricula activities, he's now left in the position where he can leave it all - his job, his wife, his children and run away with his mistress Amy. If it was all just that simple .... I'm not going to spoil the plot (for that you can look here) but I'm glad that the UL Drama Soc are alive and kicking Impact Theatre Company were visiting UL and if this is anything to go by, well able to take on whatever is throw at them so congratulations to all and thanks again Mike that was one great idea!

** UPDATE **
Thanks to Mike for the correction to Impact Theatre Company as they never introduced themselves or had any posters up so I just figured it was the Drama Soc.


  • Glad you enjoyed it. It was actually quiet different from the night before. A better athmosphere and some changes in direction I think. I love the upcloseness of it.

    It was Impact Theatre Company who performed it. They are the people who do the drama workshop on Tuesdays. The drama society are doing theres in another few weeks I think.

  • I was surprised that there was no introduction. There was an introduction by the arts officer the previous night.

  • Sorry about that guys.
    We hate the introductions, we're so used to the theatre in town. An introduction kind of spoils the magic of how you begin the show.
    If you like the UL show then please, please try the bus-ride into town and check out the proper experience.
