Lay Me Down Softly takes us into the shady world of Delaney’s Travelling Roadshow in rural Ireland in the early 60s. Somewhere between the fights and the fortune-tellers, the bookies and the bloodshed, rub shoulders with its wayward wards.
Lay Me Down Softly is written and directed by Billy Roche, the author of plays including the Wexford Trilogy, Amphibians and The Cavalcaders. He has appeared as an actor in several of his own plays.
Lay Me Down Softly plays as part of an Irish season at the Tricycle theatre.
