This new work by Philip McMahon (Town is Dead, RIOT) is billed as an exploration of “faith, family, place and desire”. Michael hasn’t been home in almost twenty years. Having been kicked out of the seminary and exiled from his family home, he found himself in London, by accident rather than design. But now, the death of his mother sees him back in the small town where he grew up. The place that chewed him up and spat him out.
Reunited with his two brothers, their partners and the local clergy, there are questions that want answering and old scores that need laying to rest. Where do you find home, when your family and faith have abandoned you? An Irish funeral brings out the best and worst in people, and a long night of truths lies ahead. Directed by Rachel O’Riordan, Come on Home features a stalwart cast including Ian Lloyd Anderson, Declan Conlon and Kathy Rose O’Brien.
