Before You Go

Before You Go

A new play about the fragility of love

Written by Laurence McKeown, directed by Paula McFetridge

A new play from Laurence McKeown looking at loss, love and living.  

Directed by Paula McFetridge; Performed by Eimear Fearon, James Doran and Lisa Duffy 
Original music by Gráinne Holland 

Sorcha O’Hagan is leaving for Australia. Her bags are packed. Only an overdue conversation with her father remains. Before she goes. 

Sorcha’s mother died when she was only 18 months old.  She was raised by her father Brendan and his family.  They had a strong relationship, but his regular absenteeism was never talked about.  As the sun rises on the border, the clock is ticking, and things need to be said… 

‘An absolute inspirational and emotional rollercoaster played perfectly by 3 amazing actors.’ 

Revival funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and An Chomhairle Ealaíon Touring Fund.  

Original music by Gráinne Holland
