I don’t remember why it happened but I remember that it happened and that it was good. And that’s enough. That’s enough, the memories, however fragile they are all we’ve got, all that bind us.
Somewhere between the past and the present there is a truth. But who remembers best? And who is right?
Held is a captivating, poignant and at times touchingly funny story of a mother and two sons and the weave and weft of family life when a member of the family becomes ill. Pauline Daniels is Mary the mother remembering the loves, joy and pain of her life, while Alan Stocks and Ged McKenna are her mismatched sons.
This debut play by an Everyman and Playhouse Young Writers Scheme graduate, Joe Ward Munrow’s Held received a rehearsed reading at Everyword 2011 and is now in full production in the Studio. Directed by Lorne Campbell.
