As the nights are drawing in what better than a good murder mystery play to entertain you! A dramatic society is assembling in a church hall to rehearse a production of a mystery-thriller under its somewhat dictatorial director Philip Stephens. Events and strains within the company, however, more than equal those in the play they are to present. The rehearsal proceeds under difficulties until the mysterious death of the caretaker brings the situation of the who-dunnit even more closely into real life. It transpires that almost everyone might, and could, have murdered the dead man – eventually the identity of the killer is revealed.

A powerful piece of devised theatre from An Tain Arts Centre’s Company-In-Residence exploring the issue of mental illness in Ireland.
“I’m falling between the cracks in myself, and I don’t know how to crawl back out…”
In this darkly comical and deeply moving new play an unsuccessful suicide attempt leaves young Leanne Dowd estranged and attempting to pick up the pieces of a life still shattered by mental illness.
Quintessence Theatre use their innovative physical ensemble story-telling techniques mingled with multi-media platforms of film and music to poignantly explore the profound struggle individuals with mental illness face on a daily basis in Ireland today.
