Taste of lightning at Roscommon Arts Centre

‘A Brief Taste of Lightning’ observes a moment in the lives of Gath and Gertie, a couple living together in their own quiet corner of modernity.   It opens on a quiet Sunday morning and begins its bizarre and humorous descent into disaster when Gath reading the newspaper stumbles across a disturbing piece of news.             The play begins with a marriage ceremony and several funerals and amongst the often hilarious stories are tales of sibling rivalry and memories of how the couple once loved each other. Garth and Gertie address each other throughout the play
