Crossings

Crossings

by Deirdre Kinahan

In 1919, Badgersbridge Village Hall is Margaret’s domain and the last place she expected to come face to face with Grace, who knew and loved Margaret’s brother. This chance meeting results in an unlikely pairing that will change the course of both of their futures.

Fast-forward to 2019. Mirjana from the care company is waiting to meet Sean’s mother to help her stay in her own home. Mirjana is from Sarajevo, but has lived in the village since escaping the war there as a teenager. The village hall has been her solace and proves an unlikely link between them.

With music, waltzing and unexpected connections, Deirdre Kinahan's play Crossings dances through a century, exploring how we return, resettle and adapt.

The play was first seen on a UK tour in 2018, in a co-production between Pentabus Theatre Company and New Perspectives.
