Keep It All In (2005)
Keep It All In was Near-ta Theatre’s second show, written by Ciaran Clarke and Daniel Richards.
Paul is a happy chap, and why wouldn’t he be? He’s got a lovely wife, great career prospects, a beautiful neighbourhood and two manipulative friends, James and Amy, who only want what’s best for themselves and will do anything in their power to secure it.
But following a bet between James and Amy over whether Paul will “crack”, his life takes a turn for the worse and crumbles around him, but how will he end up? Keep It All In was a black comedy, featuring many lovable characters played by a cast of six actors and had one of the tightest pairs of trousers in theatre history.
