If you're an Irish person, you know Clery's.
The iconic department store, which called O'Connell street home for 162 years, takes centre stage in a new play called Before.
Kicking off in the Project Arts Centre in Dublin, the play will be running in various theatres around Ireland.
The storyline is as follows: It is the day the iconic department store shuts for good.
Pontius is inside, trying to choose a gift for his estranged daughter, who he hasn't seen for almost 20 years.
We had a full house for our in development excerpts of BEFORE by Pat Kinevane and were delighted with a standing ovation and some fantastic responses! We can't wait to share this piece with the rest of the country as we tour with the Strollers Network to @visualgallery_carlow, The Source, @watergatetheatre, @hawkswelltheatre, @siamsa_tire, @solsticearts, Linenhall Arts Centre, @draiocht_blanchardstown, @belltable and @riverbankartscentreie in November and December this year. . . . #Fishamble30 #DTF18 #fishamblebefore #PatKinevane #newplay #newpatkinevane #rteconcertorchestra #strollers #newwriting #music #dance
He will meet her in an hour.
This father’s journey is both beautiful and strange, from the isolation of his Midlands home to the madness of O’Connell Street.
Some folk are impossible to buy for…
Before, directed by Jim Culleton, has been commissioned by Fishamble: The New Play Company.
This is Pat Kinevane's first solo play and will premiere next month and it is deffo a must-see.
And sure, who doesn't love a bitta culture?
