From the team that brought you Forgotten, Underneath and the Olivier Award-winning Silent, BEFORE is a new play with much music, set in Clery’s of Dublin, on the very day this iconic department store shuts – for good.  Pontius is inside, trying to choose a gift for his estranged daughter, whom he hasn’t seen for almost 20 years.  He will meet her in an hour.  This father’s journey is both beautiful and strange, from the isolation of his Midlands home, to the madness of O’Connell Street.  Some folk are impossible to buy for…

BEFORE was commissioned by Fishamble and has been in development with the support of the Arts Council, National Theatre Studio (London), Pavilion Theatre, and The Strollers Touring Network.
