The Harvest

by Jane McCarthy


Belltable | Thur, April 4th | 8pm | €18/€16


Charlotte is back on track, thanks to support from her steadfast husband Malcolm and son, Evan. She thinks she’s found another lifeline in her new friend, Shane. But Shane knows more about her idyllic life than she realises. And just how to destroy it.

The Harvest is a new thriller from acclaimed playwright, Jane McCarthy, about second chances and second lives. What we do when we have them, and what we might do to take them from others.

“The world knows about me. It knows what I did and it doesn’t care anymore. But what about you? What about what you’ve done?”
