Moment by Deirdre Kinahan

Availability: In stock.

£11.99

Quick Overview

An explosive drama about how one terrible moment can change lives irrevocably.
'I'm a different man now and it's a different life.'
'Yeah? Well, not for me it isn't.'

A brilliant choice for your A-Level students to get their teeth in to! Some fantastic extended monologues, fast-paced dialogue and moments of high tension.


On a seemingly ordinary evening an Irish family sit down to tea. The difference tonight is that Nial is home – back from prison having committed a dark crime many years earlier with some news to share and a conscience to clear.

Fast, witty and frighteningly real, Moment takes you on journey through trauma wrapped up in tablecloths and teacake.

Deirdre Kinahan's play was first performed at the Solstice Arts Centre, Co. Meath, Ireland, in November 2009. The production transferred to the Bush Theatre, London, in February 2011.


Press Quotes
'The whole play comes over like a shattering Greek tragedy, served up with cups of tea and slices of quiche'
Telegraph

'Simply a great piece of writing, a beautifully wrought drama that pitches from affable family farce to agonised domestic tragedy with liquid cruelty'
Time Out

'Moment is both a merciless excavation of a trauma and an enthralling, often disturbing account of how families can suffocate as well as nurture. It's a terrific piece of new writing.'
