| Title || Moment by Deirdre Kinahan |
Directed by Ellen W. Kaplan. Smith College presents a workshop production of Deirdre Kinahan's Moment. Nial murdered his little sister's friend. He went to prison, went through rehab, and now he's back. When he drops by his Ma's house no one can cope with his arrival. The family lives in a fog of denial but they can't escape the explosive "trauma in a teacup" that tears them apart. The play is lightning fast and frighteningly funny; it's clear-eyed and compassionate, and--like Nial--the play pulls no punches. Moment, written by astonishing Irish playwright Deirdre Kinahan, was a major hit in London last year.
