“It’s as good a night as any for a house meeting. We’re all trapped inside, anyway…”
Enid is searching for a new home. She finds a place on Cross Street. A place of routine. A place populated by some pretty serious creatures of habit. Enid’s arrival threatens to disrupt well-worn grooves. A house meeting is called. To re-establish order. But this stormy night has other things planned.
“Cross Street” is a new play written by Roscommon playwright Jarlath Tivnan (Pleasure Ground/ You Could Be Us) which is being developed as part of Fregoli Theatre Company’s two year residency at Roscommon Arts Centre. The production will premiere at Roscommon Arts Centre this winter thanks to funding support from the Arts Council of Ireland.
