The Ceasefire Babies

by Fiona Doyle
Sold out

How do we form our allegiances and beliefs?

The annual bonfire preparations are underway. Mikey’s coming home from the Centre and his sister Jamie cannot wait. But there is change in the air and not everyone’s ready for it.

Jamie wants to reignite her father and uncle’s old conflicts, but Mikey and their friends must decide whether to take hold of their own destinies, or allow the ghosts of the past to dictate their futures.

Do we make our own decisions, or do we inherit them? Can a cycle of ideology and disagreement be broken? And who can take the first step? The Ceasefire Babies is written by Fiona Doyle whose most recent play, The Strange Death of John Doe, is a finalist for the 2018 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
