Remember to Breathe is a play about three ordinary people trying to survive the ‘aftershocks’ of world events.
In a pool in New Zealand, recent emigrant Maeve is learning to swim. Doreen, her ‘swimaholic’ coach spurs her on. But as she battles the water, Maeve’s heart is calling her home – to an unresolved dilemma with her much-loved father, Johnny. Journey with Maeve as she tries to swim free from the ties that bind.
Starring Liz Fitzgibbon as Maeve, the multi-award winning Raymond Keane as Johnny and Julie Sharkey as coach Doreen.
Winner of the LUSTRUM AWARD at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Speaking on behalf of the judging panel, Robert McDowell said:
‘Orla Murphy and company have produced a stunning, sophisticated, captivating piece of theatre. The writing, direction, staging and performances in this play have been so enthralling that audiences have been glued to its every nuance.
The play speaks to issues of emigration, father-daughter relationships, the Irish economic crisis but above all else it speaks about how to find your feet in troubled times, to take a breath and keep breathing despite all that pushes against us. A thought-provoking, deeply moving and incredibly worthy winner of the Lustrum Award’.
