In 2021 we were delighted to have Longford author Eimear Reilly as one of our Activate Residency recipients. Eimear and her creative team teached and previewed a sharing of her first play The Spin during her week long residency with us. We are thrilled to continue our support of this production along with Corcadorca Theatre Company. The Spin will premiere in Backstage in Sept 22 ahead of this year’s Dublin Fringe Festival.
The Spin written by Eimear Reilly and directed by Pat Kiernan starring Aisling Kearns
Spiral at breakneck speed into the crisis-ridden present of Joanna Jennings. Twenty-seven and failing from a break-up, she must reckon with the reality of the past.
At times uncomfortably unfiltered yet entirely relatable, this new play is a meditation on the trauma of grief, its multi-generational repercussions, and the depths of love.
Produced by Corcadorca Theatre Company with the support of Backstage Theatre, Longford. Funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Cork City Council. Developed at CTDC and Backstage with the support of Creative Ireland Longford.
