Extra Time is set on an evening in August 2016 in a rural bar in close to the Sperrin mountains. Killgaddy Gaels have just won their championship county semi-final; a young German University student has filmed the game and will film all that takes place in the bar on that evening, as part of his studies. It is a comedy rooted in recognisable local characters, but has powerful darker moments as well. As the drink flows, inhibitions disappear and tongues loosen. Brilliant comic banter from early in the play merges seamlessly with discussion about identity and secret personal histories. Match commentaries, drunken dancing, storytelling, arguments: ‘tis all there.
