GHOSTING: noun; The practice of ending a personal relationship with somebody by suddenly, and without explanations, withdrawing from all communication.
Sí never sleeps well. Sí never remembers her dreams. But she wakes up in the middle of the night to find Mark, who ghosted her six years ago, standing at the end of her bed in London. What the f*ck? Now she must face her demons and go back to the last place on Earth she wants to be. Waterford. Home.
Irish Rep is proud to present the North American premiere of Waterford natives Anne O’Riordan’s (Call the Midwife, Doctors) and Jamie Beamish’s (Bridgerton, Derry Girls) tragic-comic new play. First premiering to sold-out audiences in London, O’Riordan and Beamish brought their collaboration home to Theatre Royal, Waterford in 2019. This production of Ghosting was streamed live online from Theatre Royal in April 2020.
