Lockdown. Locked up. Locked in. No way out. No way in…
Drogheda, 2020. In the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic two neighbours, Matt and Aisling, are each trapped in their own cycles of relationship abuse from which there can be no escape during a national lockdown. She just wants to feel safe. He just wants to see his children.
In this original play based on true stories, Quintessence Theatre use their dazzling physical ensemble theatre techniques mingled with the multi-media of film and music to intimately and poignantly explore the struggle of Irish men and women caught in abusive purgatories made all the more perilous by COVID-19 restrictions in an inefficient and unsympathetic system.
