A visually striking play about the rite of passage from girlhood to womanhood in post-war Ireland.

Written by Tzarini Meyler and Directed by Graham Butler Breen,  KITES incorporates drama, striking visuals and physical theatre in a fast paced two-hander and sensory spectacle. At a time when purse strings are tightening across the board, KITES draws parallels to another time of austerity and instability, reflecting on writer Tzarini’s  own grandmother's upbringing and the opportunities that women would sacrifice to do what was expected.

Kitty and Angel are two girls living in Cork in 1948. Armed with kites and the power of make-believe, they leave behind their broken families and wartime grief, and let their fantasies take flight. But what happens when the line gets caught, and reality beckons? 

Running Time: 60 mins | Suitable for ages 12+ 

Directed by Graham Butler Breen, Written by Tzarini Meyler
