“It’s as good a night as any for a house meeting. We’re all trapped inside, anyway…”
Fregoli Theatre Company presents a new play, CROSS STREET. This comedy play offers hints of horror while exploring mental health issues and can be seen from 25th-27th November, with a preview performance on the 24th November. The story sees Enid who is searching for a new home. She finds a place on Cross Street. A place of routine. A place populated by some pretty serious creatures of habit. Enid’s arrival threatens to disrupt well-worn grooves. A house meeting is called. To re-establish order. But this stormy night has other things planned. Cross Street looks at how mental issues can grow and manifest when left to fester. Each housemate struggles with their own ghosts purposefully isolating themselves from anyone who may interfere or help. The housemates struggle with grief, guilt, alcoholism, eating disorders, neglect, self-harm and self-doubt.
Written by Jarlath Tivnan (Pleasure Ground/ You Could Be Us) and in development with Fregoli Theatre Company as part of their residency at The Roscommon Arts Centre. Directed by Eimear Finan, “Cross Street” will be performed by Jarlath Tivnan, Delia Keane, Paige Leavy and Peter Shine.
