In 1971, footballing legend George Best spent a turbulent weekend in the Islington flat of Irish actress and intimate friend, Sinead Cusack. The play explores their almost-forgotten relationship, which was put under great strain after George’s whereabouts were discovered and hordes of press and adoring fans mobbed the flat, entrapping them both there for three days. People can only guess at what really happened inside the flat. Hello Georgie, Goodbye Best offers us a candid lens depicting what happens when you take two young adults out of Ireland and violently expose them to publicity.
