A groggy Sunday morning, May 24th 2015 as 62% of Ireland is #hungoverforequality, Ann gets a text from her brother: “How’s the morning after the life before?”
Gúna Nua presents the internationally acclaimed and multi award winning, The Morning After The Life Before. A personal, entertaining tale of weddings, ‘coming out’ and arguments over who takes out the bins.
Written by Ann Blake, directed by Paul Meade, performed by Ann Blake and Lucia Smyth, The Morning After The Life Before is a light-hearted, playful telling of a true story. Be prepared for music, cake and equality.
