The Poker Session


By Hugh Leonard


Tuesday 15th - Saturday 19th September 1981

Billy returns home after a year in a mental asylum. He invites his brother and sister-in-law (Kevin and Fran) and his best friend (Des) and his wife (Irene) for a game of poker, a repeat of the night immediately before his commitment to the asylum. But what starts as a game of cards turns into a different sort of poker game when Billy's strange friend, Teddy, arrives...


Why is Kevin so keen to keep quiet about Billy's stall? What is the truth about the death of Billy's sister? Why did Irene throw over Billy? What is the real reason for Teddy coming? Why did Billy get sent to the asylum?
