A contemporary tragedy set in small-town Ireland, by one of Ireland’s most exciting playwrights.

What does it feel like to lose everything? To explain? What does it take to forgive the unforgivable?

In small-town Ireland, father-of-one Conor is desperate to hold on to a life that is disintegrating before his eyes. Susan is a mother searching for reason in the darkness of her teenage daughter’s killing. When they finally meet, a contemporary tragedy comes to light.

Deirdre Kinahan’s play Spinning was first performed by Fishamble: The New Play Company as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2014.

‘Captures the claustrophobia of small town society and family life in a play that transcends its bleak premise’
Irish Times
