Fresh from winning the ‘Lustrum’ Award Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, a nominated Fishamble Best New Play Tiger Dublin Fringe 2015 and BBC International Playwriting Award, Orla Murphy’s ‘Remember to Breathe’ comes to Roscommon Arts Centre on Wednesday, 28th of September at 8 pm.
The drama centres around a pool in post-earthquake New Zealand, where recent emigrant Maeve is learning to swim. Her ‘swimaholic’ coach spurs her on. But even as she battles the water, Maeve’s heart is calling her home – to an unresolved dilemma with her much-loved father. Follow Maeve as she tries to swim free from the ties that bind. This is a powerful play about emigration, families, economic crisis and individuals trying to survive the ‘aftershocks’ of world events.
Starring Abbey Theatre regular Liz Fitzgibbon as Maeve, the multi-award winning Raymond Keane as Johnny and Roscommon actress Julie Sharkey as coach Doreen, this thought-provoking and deeply moving theatre is not to be missed.
