Kabosh Theatre Company presents “Third person in our marriage” from their Legacy of Conflict series, directed by Paula McFetridge.
Commissioned by Relatives for Justice to mark the release of the Eames/Bradley Report, this short drama examines the sensitive subject of victimhood. A husband and wife are having a seemingly domestic conversation but there is a third person in the room: the voice of the husband’s internal thoughts. This voice proclaims how difficult it is to have a successful, healthy marriage when the presence of a dead, loved one is forever there. It asks if there is a timeline to victimhood.
The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion.
Following its highly acclaimed, sold out premiere in Belfast last year Partisan Production in collaboration with Clanmil Housing are delighted to present the play SHARED?
Shared? follows a colourful cast of characters living in and near by to a shared housing association development where a rumour has been circulating and the local Neighbourhood App has taken a very odd turn. Meet these neighbours from different countries, classes and cultures as their worlds begin to combine and collide.
One of them is Emma, a single working mother, she has “earned” enough “points” to move into a new flat in a shared neighbourhood on the leafy side of town. But what’s the point in a point system when the teenage party girl downstairs, the one with the social worker, doesn’t seem to care that some people have to work long hours? All Emma really wants is to spend time with her 14 year old daughter who has developed some issues of her own.
Watch the scenes as a host of community members cross wires and cross paths in a bid to belong
