By Bush Moukarzel
with cameo-playwright Mark O’Halloran
In 2000 in Leixlip, co. Kildare, an aunt and 3 sisters boarded themselves
into their home and entered into a suicide pact that lasted 40 days.
We weren’t there. We don’t know what they said. This is not their story.

A dense yet simple piece,
both visually and aurally.
Like nothing you’ve ever seen.
