Janey Godley’s ‘The Point of Yes’
This article is from 2006.
Written and performed by stand up comic and playwright Janey Godley, this semi-autobiographical play follows the lives of two women, both of whom are coping with the affects of heroin addiction. Interweaving the monologues, the play switches between the character of the abused pub landlady and a younger, equally desperate addict. Godley plays her two protagonists with conviction and empathy, drawing comparisons to political events of the mid-80s to highlight the drug endemic ravaging her community. (Holly Walsh)
