Written by Ger Bourke
Directed by Pat Kiernan
With Kevin Flood and Marie Hastings
Snap is set on the outskirts of a rural Irish town and covers the married life of Sonny and Nonnie, spanning 50 years from 1950 to the present day. Two elderly actors play multi-roles, including their children and members of the local community, until we are left with just Sonny and Nonnie and the reality of their isolated existence. It is a portrayal of “life as it is” for many unheard voices trapped in the cycle of social and domestic violence. Moving from hilarious fun at times to poignant sadness, Snap succeeds in giving us one distinct and individual view of Ireland.
Snap by Ger Bourke opens in a disused IAWS Warehouse on Cork’s Albert Quay on September 22nd before transferring to Project as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival in October.
Ger Bourke was the winner of the 2000 Corcadorca Playwright Award for his play “Banshee Makers” which was produced by the company and attracted critical acclaim with The Irish Theatre Magazine commenting that “Corcadorca succeeded in bringing a confident and engaging new voice to Irish audiences.”
