'a young, energetic and fearless company'

coming to edinburgh!
A wild and darkly comic journey down the streets and back alleys of modern Dublin, from award-winning writer, Stewart Roche, and ground-breaking young Irish theatre collective, The Corps Ensemble.
This thrilling new play brings you to places you shouldn't go but want to – while asking one question: how well do you really know yourself? Inspired by the worlds of Edgar Allen Poe and Chuck Palahniuk.
vital. visceral. vivid.

A REHEARSED READING
What's here, in this place? Sunk into the ground with the roots of the rhododendrons, baked into the crusts of the bread, shining on the surface of the water?
Grace knows. Mama knows.
Callie will know soon enough.
