Background


The acclaimed Strange Fish Theatre Company (Quietly, The Turn of the Screw) returns with an extraordinary play by one of Ireland's greatest playwrights.


Frank McGuinness has written a constantly surprising tale that is by turns shocking, humorous and moving.


Synopsis


And she grew to be a girl, my daughter, my Mary.


Sing a song, Mary.


Sing a song for Grandma and Granda. Sing.


The ties that bind us can never be broken and a potent flame burns in the heart of a mother.


Why is Londoner Sal hiding out on a remote Irish island?


Her compelling story is one of love, hate and the desire for revenge.


She must face her demons alone and her tale begs only one question: what would you be prepared to do for the ones you love?


All I do know is that I am going to be different from others who've suffered like this.
