About This Show

Haunted by the death of her twin brother Gabriel, Portia Coughlan has become, in turn, a ghostly figure, traversing the ever shifting Irish landscape in search of the missing part of herself. Weaving various Shakespearean and mythological strands together, Marina Carr crafts a modern epic of heart-breaking beauty that refuses to let you go.

Marina Carr was raised in Gortnamona, Co. Offaly, which continues to inspire the location for most of her plays. She received a B.A. in English and Philosophy from UCD in 1987 and at one point began a PhD on Beckett at TCD. She was appointed as writer-in-residence at the Abbey Theatre in 1995-6, was named Trinity College Dublin writer-in-residence in 1999 and is a member of Aosdana. Previous plays include Low in the Dark, The Deer’s Surrender, Ullaloo, This Love Thing, The Mai, which was the winner of Dublin Theatre Festival Best New Play Award, 1994, On Rafferty’s Hill, By The Bog of Cats , Ariel and most recently, Woman and Scarecrow starring Fiona Shaw.
