I’m losing my mind, not a pound in my purse or a crust of bread. I could willingly strangle you Randolph”
Dublin, 1981. Marian. Out of work actress. Cunning like a fox. Destiny has taken her on a spiralling journey from rural Galway to Soho to a lonely kitchenette – a carcass of its former self. But Marian’s show goes on…
No company but the wailing street cats and the weasel-eyed Bernie, her neighbour with “good” intentions. Deep within the walls of Marian’s self-imposed jail lies heartbreak and secrets. Living on a loop, her life is an endless pattern of slumber, fantasy and bitter reminiscence.
Enter Roisin. The home help. She’s anxious and hungry for answers. The powerful pair bond over tea and lost stories as we are whirled into 1940’s London. A cacophony of sirens. Whistling screams. Incendries light up the London sky. Marian is a young Irish woman with big ideas and a Hollywood dream. Her heart swelling with new love.
Fall into Marian’s mind as she searches for herself in what was. With a stunning sound design and original costumes, this show is a feast for the senses.
