LEAP presents…The Pentabus Theatre Company presents Crossings by Deirdre Kinahan
November 22 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm£10.00
In 1919, Badgersbridge Village Hall is Margaret’s domain and the last place she expected to come face to face with Grace; who knew and loved Margaret’s brother. Through this chance meeting their two lives collide resulting in an unlikely pairing that will change the course of both of their futures
Fast forward to 2019. Sean can’t find his mother to meet Mirjana from the care company, here to help her stay in her own home. Mirjana is from Sarajevo, but has lived in the village since escaping the war there as a teenager. The village hall has been her solace and proves an unlikely link between them.
With live music, waltzing and unexpected connections, two actors will dance you through a century exploring how we return, resettle and adapt.
Pentabus and New Perspectives are thrilled to announce our cast: Victoria Brazier whose recent works include The Secret Garden (York Theatre Royal and Theatre by the Lake) Hard Times (Northern Broadsides) and Three Mothers (Waterloo East) and Will O’Connell whose recent theatre includes Class (Traverse Theatre, Galway Arts Festival, Abbey Theatre, Dublin Theatre Festival), Swansong (Kilkenny Arts Festival) and Luck Just Kissed You Hello (HotForTheatre/GIAF/Dublin Theatre Festival).
