Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).


Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.


However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.


The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).


Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

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.

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.


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: 14+


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.
