    The full-length work was developed from a short play comissioned by the Wexford Arts Centre and produced in October 2014 as part of Wexford Festival Opera

  • Synopsis

    Wexford man Noel has advanced MS and decides to end it all. While waiting for his overdose to take effect he records an increasingly rambling message for his best friend. Noel has apologies to make and messages to send. He has love in his heart and he wants to declare it even if it’s already too late. Noel spends what is possibly the last hour of his life re-living the highs and lows of the past forty years and, surprisingly perhaps, it’s not all doom and gloom.
