A woman returns home to Bellaghy. A homecoming of sorts. Old haunts. Old habits. Old ground. What harm? What does she want? She has a tale to tell. ‘I had my existence. I was there. Me in place and the place in me.’

Join Kabosh on a theatrical journey around Bellaghy. Experience the places that for Seamus Heaney ‘lie deep, like some script indelibly written into the nervous system.’
