NoRopes Theatre Company return with their most exciting production to date, Wake by the award-winning YA author Deirdre Sullivan. Fresh from her Druid FUEL experience, director Mairéad Folan presents the world premiere of Sullivan’s feminist retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid.
Caitríona’s sister Mara has gone missing and has left a mystery in her wake. Caitríona examines her loss and love, her anger and pain and what Mara has left behind is painfully inadequate to help her cope - from revisiting a childhood story, to confronting a difficult possibility, to reliving the interactions they shared in the months leading up to her disappearance.
