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?
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.
