“Did you hear about Pablo?” are the opening words of ‘Bring Me Back Alive’, a thought provoking story about the suicide of a young man in his prime. The words, spoken from one of his friends to another, echo similar conversations being had throughout our society, as a group of six companions battle to make sense of their loss.
The award-winning play by writer Patricia McCann, set in a youth centre in present day, highlights Jessica, Nadia, Jocker, Robyn, Daryll & Peaches attempt to exit the shadow of grief cast by Pablo’s untimely death.
‘Bring Me Back Alive’ skillfully straddles drama and comedic storytelling, representative of Patricia McCann’s strong writing style, through the raw truth of her social consciousness. She does this while all the time reminding us that even in our darkest of hours, where there’s life there’s hope. The play highlights the warning signs to look for in a person contemplating suicide. The main theme is to show there is hope; there is an alternative. The play is written in as light-hearted a way as possible in order to give hope to those who need it most.
