Bush Theatre announces final play for season

News from the Bush Theatre on their final play of the season:

In keeping with the Bush Theatre’s long association with Irish playwrights, we are excited to announce Deirdre Kinahan’s UK premiere of MOMENT. Deirdre is one of a rising tide of female Irish playwrights bringing a new perspective to the Irish theatrical landscape. She is noted for writing in a deceptively easy style and The Irish Times describes her as ‘strikingly alive to the surge and hesitations, the irruptions and swallowed sentiments of everyday speech’; her plays explore the big issues through the minutiae of ordinary lives.

What happens when a child is killed and how does it feel when your child does the killing? This is a central question in her thrilling new play MOMENT.

It is a seemingly ordinary evening and an Irish family sit down to tea. But it’s different tonight…Nial is home, back from prison having committed a dark crime many years earlier with some news to share and a conscience to clear.

Fast, funny and frighteningly real, MOMENT examines how one terrible moment can change lives forever.
