OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

     

  • Author Notes

    Devised and written by the director and cast.

  • Synopsis

    True Lines weaves the stories of four Irish twenty-somethings in different parts of the world simultaneously. Each of the characters' stories concerns lines; lines on a highway somewhere in Arizona, Aboriginal songlines in Australia, lines drawn on a hotel bedroom in Berlin and the layers of bones in Africa. These lines are crossed and connected as each character struggles with questions of personal and cultural identity.
