Haunted by the death, fifteen years previously, of her twin brother who keeps calling to her, Portia Coughlan has become, in turn, a ghostly figure. She lives with her husband, whom she can’t love, and her three children, whom she can’t trust herself to care for.

The drama of Portia’s sexually charged relationships and her fierce exertion to sustain her independence grows and grows in Marina Carr’s richly textured dialogue, beautiful lyric soarings and visionary flights.

‘Carr’s harrowing play has the scale and anguish of myth, and the immediacy of a contemporary anecdote.
