Finally delighted to reveal…..
‘Cosy’ at Cork Midsummer Festival 2019.
Kaite O’Reilly’s darkly comic play combines an unflinching examination of our attitudes to youth, ageing, and death in an often hilarious and moving encounter between three generations of women.
“It’s like I’ve disappeared. I walk down the road and throw no shadow.”
“That’s what getting older does for you.”
Rose wants an exit plan that is bold and invigorating, but her three warring daughters have other ideas. We all have to die, but what makes a good death? Everyone seems to have an opinion: Rose’s daughters, her precocious granddaughter and even the strange Welsh woman taking refuge in the garden.
