Acclaimed adoption drama ‘Postscript’ features at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday, April 26th - ‘Postscript’ is a poignant and humorous play detailing the accounts of a woman turned detective and on a mission to reveal the truth of her past.
Following on from its success at the Dublin Fringe Festival 2013, written and performed in part by Noelle Brown, ‘Postscript’ gives its audience a deeper insight into the emotional, difficult and troubling journey that is the search for identity and self.
Told early on by loving parents that she was adopted, Brown decides as an adult to track down her birth mother and uncover the circumstances that prompted her being given up for adoption.
She outlines her dilemma: “from a very early age I was told I was adopted. In fairness I think my parents had no choice but to tell me, what with me being redheaded with pale skin in a family with dark skin and dark hair - this made it pretty obvious that something wasn’t right. While I loved being able to say I was adopted when I was a child (because it made me feel exotic), I also learned that it was a word that was used by adults with a dropped voice. ‘Bad blood will out’ was a phrase that was often thrown around in conversation in relation to adopted children in 70’s and 80’s Ireland”.
Described by the Irish Theatre Magazine as ‘a haunting retrospective’ ‘Postscript’ is a play not to be missed.
The Nenagh Arts Centre will feature ‘Postscript’ on Saturday, April 26th at 8pm.
Tickets are priced at €15 and available from the Arts Centre at 067 34400 or online at www.nenagharts.com.
