FIGHT BACK FESTIVAL 2020
Presented by The New Theatre and TakeYourSeats.ie
An isolated island. A commune of like-minded people.
A chance at a new beginning.
You wouldn’t think it to look at him now but Spooner was

at crunching numbers, a real company man. But the veneer
of success hid a desire for something different in life. So
when offered the opportunity to join a community by the
charismatic Kemp, he jumped at the chance. However the
desolation and sadness Spooner found in his new
surroundings soon made him realise that some places on
earth are not meant to be occupied.
And some places on earth have a will all of their own…
