Winner, Heiress Productions New Play CONTEST (as For Mother’s Song)
Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, 1982. Set against the bloody backdrop of the Troubles, the Regan family have their own battles to fight: Fiona, the daughter, has been newly inducted into a militant branch of the IRA by her handsome young beau; Colin, the son, is led to bloody violence by a spirit who claims to be his dead mother; Owen, the father, can barely keep his rage contained long enough to hold them all together. But a grim family secret threatens to blow them all apart, while pushing them deeper into the darkness of war. The Aisling is a riveting drama about the dualities of fantasy and reality, sanity and madness, light and dark, and one family’s struggle to survive.
