Some Names Were Changed


  • Playwright

    Ross Dungan 

  • Author Notes

    The programme fictiously lists Ronan MacFarlane and Ronan Phelan as additional writers.

  • Notes

    Based on the experiences of Priscilla and Ainie Grainger and made with their key collaboration.

  • Synopsis

    BLANK meets BLANK. BLANK falls for BLANK. BLANK tells BLANK. BLANK blanks BLANK. This is a play about attempting to piece together a real-life event when none of the persons involved can agree what actually happened. Based on disputed testimony, this interactive documentary theatre show chronicles a truly impossible process whilst also trying our level best to actually tell this f**king story.
