“Captures the claustrophobia of small town society and family life in a play that transcends its bleak premise” —Irish Times
A devastating new play about loss and families, by Deirdre Kinahan, 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.
Spinning was first performed by Fishamble: The New Play Company as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2014.
Deirdre Kinahan is a Dublin-based playwright and theatre producer who founded and runs the production company Tall Tales.
