about

Never safe, always provocative, sometimes controversial, Anne Le Marquand Hartigan combines forceful poetry with absurdist atrocity and surrealism in this moving trilogy. 

Three tragic events from World War II Nazi occupied Jersey are explored in this avant-garde trilogy of plays from award winning Irish playwright, Anne Le Marquand Hartigan. 

A boatload of French prostitutes is shipwrecked, drowned, their bodies 
abandoned to drift on the tide; a slave worker, brutally slain by the Nazis, shamefully concealed in the very wall he was building; two extraordinary sisters, stealthily and subversively working in the resistance.

“Her characters hark back to Beckett’s absurdist, dislocated figures and their self-referential monologues in which sound frequently 
communicates more than actual words. These men and women partake in symbolic rituals rather than sit around naturalistic kitchen tables and have their tea.” Irish Times.

“The searing lament in this play is for… all women, and how they are too often seen by men as throwaway flotsam.”  Irish Times.
