TAKE ME AWAY

Sold out

'And she wasn't a very loving mother either. I mean she never made rice krispie buns – do you know what I mean?'

Eddie and his sons are creatures of the night shift – it's the days that give them trouble. Bren (the love child) surfs the net alone. Andy (planned) can't confirm the whereabouts of his girlfriend and son. Kev (the mistake) isn't throwing his money around like the IT whizzkid they take him for. A duty visit to their mother in hospital requires them to act like model siblings; but confusion around her illness and her mysterious good news become the fuel for this unsettling comedy which charts the meltdown of a family of men caught in the claw of the Celtic tiger.

Ambreen Razia: ‘Show the West the pain they’ve caused…the colonial trauma inflicted on your ancestors’

Monday – ‘I hid his firearms’ she said through her chestnut eyes, her finger tips lightly touching one another, blonde highlights through her Pakistani hair, each strand telling me who she used to be. ‘This country’s failed me’, her words bouncing off her majesty’s walls, I sit opposite her with my name, she sits opposite…

the lonely creative. by Robyn London

I have spent my life immersed in creativity.  As a guide, passion or perhaps what others may interpret as an unrealistic dream.  It is embedded within my earliest memories. It has nurtured my soul. There is beauty in the moments of creativity that healed parts of me, that I didn’t realise were broken. Memories of…
