Darling, there is always regret for the life you didn’t lead…

A premonition of impending catastrophe precedes a collision between waking and subconscious lives, the ‘prose of living’ and the profusion of dreams. In a drama which confronts ‘elusive territory’ hidden fantasies and passions vie with the call of friendship, the cost of fidelity and the fatal price of what cannot be unsaid.

 

By dissecting her characters’ humdrum existence and touching on the antics of those who struggle to accept their mortality, Marble describes the crime of ‘dying of an empty heart’. In this, her latest play for the Abbey Theatre, this prodigiously gifted writer cuts to the quick of a pair of modern marriages.
