Theatre Artist in Residence, Julie Sharkey, has been researching small family run businesses in the west of Ireland as the basis for a new work for stage. Mentored by Mikel Murfi, this autumn, audiences are invited to join us for a rehearsed reading of ‘Chicken Wings in Peace’. Bridie has married into a small family run haulage business, but the love and enthusiasm she once felt for her life here, becomes overshadowed by a shocking family tragedy, lost love and an economic downturn. The play examines how historical and romantic attachments to a family business can make any step away from it almost impossible.
