“And she grew to be a girl, my daughter, my Mary. Sing a song, Mary. Sing for grandma and granda. Sing.”

The London premiere of a visceral new play by one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights and poets, Frank McGuinness (Greta Garbo Came to Donegal, Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me).

The ties that bind can never be broken. For Sal, they hang like a noose around her neck, just loose enough to keep a small but potent flame alive inside.

A passionate story of one woman’s journey through forgiveness, revenge and redemption.

Performed by Leanne Best, directed by Lia Williams.

Creatives include Colin Richmond (Designer), Charlie Lucas (Lighting Designer) and Giles Perring (Sound Designer and Composer).
