1956 Archway, North London
Aileen comes to London in 1956 looking for her sister, Maeve, who has run away from home to escape an arranged marriage to a man “with a face like The Turin Shroud”. Will Aileen find Maeve? And will she want to go back to Ireland herself once she’s tasted the freedom that London has to offer?
First performed at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, Kentish Town, London NW1 and at the Colour House Theatre Colliers Wood in October 2016 as part of the “In the Shadow or in the Shelter” festival of new London Irish Writing.
Body and Blood will be reprised by Unclouded Moon productions at the Kings Head Theatre, London N1 from 10th- 12th July 2017. Please click here for further information
