Written by Tuam native Patricia King-Callaghan, Act 1 of ‘The Crossing’ is set in rural Ireland in 1912 and explores traditional themes which have their roots deep in Irish peasantry. Youths plan to leave the land and board RMS Titanic to begin a new life in Massachusetts. Their plans are interfered with by feuding parents and some dark truths are revealed.
Act 2 transports the Audience to 1928, a Free State Ireland which exposes the fate of the youths. The story centres around the kitchen table with the huge influence of the Irish mother who is reminiscent of the infamous Sean Bhean Bhocht.
An immensely emotional storyline, the play enables the Audience to step back in time and witness the intimacy of life that is embedded in old Ireland.
Commencing 8 p.m. Admission E12.50/10.00 plus booking fee.
