A new play written and directed by Ben Kavanagh.
The patriarch of a large family has been arrested after the body of a young girl is found in the walls of the family home. As the children rally around their mother, the police have suspicions she may know more than she's letting on. So do the children.
"Everyone has stones in their pockets for christ sake, why should you be any different?"
Inspired loosely by the infamous 25 Cromwell Street murders, Ben Kavanagh's new play examines the damaging affects of cycles of abuse, how the strength of family bonds can be as dangerous as they are fundamental to how we survive, and to what extent we are the victims of our parents, whether we like it or not.

CLATTERHOUSE THEATRE was formed in early 2013 by Artistic Director Ben Kavanagh to produce theatre which is rich, arresting and above all makes noise. Combining powerful performances and ensemble work with quirky high concept and design, the company likes to make noise in two key areas: championing new writing and reinventing the classics both for the purposes of challenging contemporary audiences whilst giving them a memorable and fulfilling experience.
“The job of the artist is to remind people of what they have chosen to forget.”
