The impact of a death on those left behind

Feidlim Cannon’s father Seán died in 2001 – a death that could have been prevented. In addition to coping with the loss of a husband and father, Seán’s wife, Anne, and his sons had to negotiate the minefield of taking legal action against the medical profession.

It was only when that the legal issue was sorted, eight years later, that the family could grieve properly, says Feidlim.

He is a writer and performer, and both were central to his grieving process. The result is Have I No Mouth, a powerful piece of theatre that explores the impact of a tragic death on those left behind.

The drama features Feidlim, but more surprisingly his mother Ann is also on stage too, despite having no background in theatre – previously a community activist, she is now a complementary health practitioner and inter-faith minister.
