Written by Maria Tivnan tells the story of David, a young man whose childhood was far from perfect, growing up in a home where there was domestic violence. In this moving and tender monologue, David now reflects on his childhood and the role of his mother in his life. Performed by Oisin Robbins.
“Inside You Stay” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZYqAHVJpRY&t=12s
Written by Tara Finn, this piece explores issues of mental health and the idea of a safe space. For Sinéad, there is nothing “new” about this “new normal”. Using the words of others, from the pages of books and the tongues of loved ones, Sinéad tries to make sense of herself and how it is she feels bound to stay inside. Inside You Stay looks at two sisters’ different ways of coping, or not coping, with life, and most recently, life in lockdown. Directed by Maria Tivnan , edited by Paul D’Eath , performed by Eimear Finan , Eilis Flaherty , Jarlath Tivnan and Kate Murray .
Fregoli Theatre Company’s residency is supported by The Arts Council and the Creative Ireland Roscommon Programme
