A play about family, loss and moving on. Through rap and rhyme.
Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done,
things never stay the same.
Nothing’s more final than somebody dying,
those years were wasted dodging questions and lying.
And now your answers are buried in earth,
and the flowers on top just cover the dirt.
Because life’s not a poem, a kid’s nursery rhyme.
In real life the hero doesn’t quite make it on time.
Little bo peep has lost her sheep and doesn’t know where to find them,
Leave them alone and he’ll leave you alone and then maybe one day he’ll decide to come back on the worst day of your life and you might not even recognise him.
Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You

How does it feel to have your world blown apart? Britain is booming and Molly moves to London from deepest Cornwall full of naive dreams and high hopes on a quest to make her life just like the movies.
Then on 7/7/2005, she finds herself on a tube blown up by terrorists and her life is forced to take a different direction. Funny, frank and poetic, this is the true story of what happened next and how we put things back together after they’ve been blown apart.

What do you get if you throw yourself into the Irish Sea 365 days of the year? Famous as a ‘men-only bathing area’ before being radically reclaimed in the 1970′s by a group of nudist plunging women and as the site of the Martello tower (James Joyce’s residence and opening to Ulysses), the forty foot has had its fair share of stories told.
Join Niamh McCann as she unearths the compulsion and joy found both in her own personal journey as a ritual swimmer and the voices of the many other women who bathe there. This performance investigates the effect of the daily dive and how it can lead us to staying afloat on dry land.
Better Loved From Afar

It seems that these days we are all Irish, from Barack O’Bama to Che Guevara Lynch. But what does it really mean to be part of the Irish Diaspora?
We are two Argentinean cousins who came to Dublin a decade ago in search of our long lost motherland, reversing the journey of our great great grandfather who emigrated from Dublin to La Pampa 200 years ago. This is an epic archival voyage which attempts to reconstruct our Irish identity after being brought up on a romanticized ideal of the Emerald Isle.
Our search for “the glory and the story of the sea-divided Gaels” uncovers a journey of lies, revealing that perhaps the motherland is better loved from afar …
