Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me is a startling testament to the power of the human spirit. Following an Englishman, American, and Irishman through their experience as hostages in Lebanon, McGuinness’ multi-award winning play is both funny and heart-wrenching. As the three men wrestle with their differences to develop an extraordinary friendship, we are asked to consider life on the edge of human existence. Ultimately the play is a celebration of life and humanity. It received the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Foreign Play in 1993 and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play.
