Elizabeth Cosgrove is staring through the shop window at the Denim jacket soon to be hers. Conor McKeating looks on as his brother frantically sprints down the hill towards their car, while Mari Jennings is waiting at home, by herself, for her husband who she believe to be at a Tyrone match across town.
It’s the 15th of August, 1998, 17 seconds past noon, a normal, busy Saturday on Lower Market Street. In 43 seconds many lives will be changed forever.
A haunting new Irish play which looks back at the terror and tragedy of the day of the Omagh bombing through the eyes of three people. Three stories told through a series of beautifully interwoven monologues reveal the heartache, remorse and regrets of that day and the hope for new beginnings.
Suitable ages 12+
“a powerful, beautifully-written text, and an audience sitting quietly in the dark, utterly enthralled and moved by a story that could scarcely be better told.”
The Scotsman ****
“beautiful and poignant” The List
“asks that the audience look beyond the news stories and court cases to the people whose lives were torn asunder on what was meant to be just another Saturday.” ****
Scotsman Fringe First Winner 2011
