On the outskirts of Ennis, on a dark and stormy night, three men gather for the anniversary of a childhood friend, killed in a road accident when they were seventeen. Expecting a crowd and tearing into the cans, the three slowly realise they're the only ones coming. As they drink to their uncertain futures and their receding youth they're forced to face up to the ghost that has held them together.

Flights is a haunting and funny play about bereavement, brotherhood and breaking away from your past. It premiered in 2020 at glr in Ennis before transferring to Dublin and London, directed by Thomas Martin.

Sink is a play of two voices for one actor, about memory, catastrophe and sacrifice. Brd's coming home to convalesce after drying out in rehab. Ciara's headed west too, investigating a potential archaeological site on a parched area of bogland. But as the countryside swelters in a heatwave, the pair find peace elusive. How will Brd cope in her old haunts? How will Ciara confront a past she thought forgotten? And will they unearth the hidden truth that binds them together?
