FIGHT BACK FESTIVAL 2020
Presented by The New Theatre and TakeYourSeats.ie
Amanda is home alone and recovering from an illness.
Having made friends with an unsuspecting intruder, she fills
them in on her last few weeks: a gals holiday gone wrong,
an epiphanic stay in hospital, and a seemingly stable
relationship that’s left her reeling. In a time of uncertainty,
Amanda can’t do much but decide what to do with the one
thing she has control over: the jar.
