A disused oratory on a wintry night, shrouded statues and old
furniture can be glimpsed in the torchlight as a nun searches for
the records of her religious order. Her surprising encounter with
a homeless man who seems to have taken refuge there leads to
them both to major moments of recognition and discovery. A world
premiere with well known actors Cora Fenton and Jack Healy as
two great and memorable characters, and specially-commissioned
music by Irene Buckley, Ger FitzGibbon’s new play Tenebrae is a
challenging, humorous and moving response to issues that seem to
haunt contemporary Ireland.
