Our Lady of the Goldfinches
  • Play
  • "Set on an anonymous beach, this radical new play examines sacrifice, martyrdom and the redemptive quality of love.

    This is the story of Jean McConville's murder by the IRA and of her daughter Helen's attempt to make sense of her death. After 30 years of searching, the Good Friday agreement prompted the IRA to disclose the location of Jean's grave.

    This physical production incorporates a bold multi-media score to animate the 'fog of war'. From the sounds and images of the 'Troubles' to the felling of the watchtowers, from traditional music to live mixed samples, this haunting play evokes a lonely beach in County Louth as a holy place in a Last Rites of Reconciliation."
