Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.

I'm Not Here

    Doireann Coady 

  • Synopsis

    Doireann is here and she wants to check if a few things are working. She’s going to be doing a couple of songs, a couple of poems and maybe a few stories. She’s after finding a load of tapes. She’s going to be doing a duet with her brother. If you’re concerned about anything that’s happening on the stage just remember to listen to the sound of her voice. She’s doing a duet with her brother. He’s not here. He is dead.
