From the team that brought you Forgotten, Underneath and the Oliver Award-winning Silent, Before is a new play with much music, set in Clery’s of Dublin, on the very day this iconic department store shuts – for good. Pontius is inside, trying to choose a gift for his estranged daughter, whom he hasn’t seen for almost 20 years. He will meet her in an hour. This father’s journey is both beautiful and strange, from the isolation of his Midlands home, to the madness of O’Connell Street. Some folk are impossible to buy for….
Fishamble is an Oliver Award-winning internationally acclaimed Irish theatre company, dedicated to the discovery, development and production of new work.
****’Kinevane’s performance works like a spell … a real showstopper, heaven can be found in the most unlikely places.’
