Roscommon Arts Centre are delighted to welcome the Oliver award winning theatre team that is Pat Kinevane and Fishamble: The New Play Company to their stage with their production 'Before' on Thursday, April 11, at 8pm. This is the team that created theatrical masterpieces such as 'Forgotten', 'Underneath' and the Oliver award-winning 'Silent'.
'Before' is a new play with much music, set in Clery’s of Dublin, on the very day this iconic department store shuts for good. Pontius is inside, trying to choose a gift for his estranged daughter, whom he hasn’t seen for almost 20 years. He will meet her in an hour. This father’s journey is both beautiful and strange, from the isolation of his Midlands home, to the madness of O’Connell Street. Some folk are impossible to buy for…
