CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Jo Clifford explores the lives of an ordinary family who are aware that they are part of a story, and initially bemused by all the attention. The everyday concerns and events of their lives form the early part of the play - raising children, growing up, growing old. But all of this changes when Death comes calling. Plunged suddenly into a reality where they can no longer rely on the 'certainties' of existence, Joe, Mary, Kevin and Mazz must reassess their lives. Perspectives change and the things they cherish and regret are stripped of all the usual distractions and confusions. Jo's play presents a warm and uplifting look at how ordinary people deal with tragedy. It's a story that will resonate with anyone who has lost someone they love - and suggests that when we grieve it's for the good times that are past rather than the pain we feel now. Performers David Cunningham, Kathryn Howden, Jonathan Hackett, Jenny Hulse, Kule McPhail, Tina Gray, Liam Brennan.
