Lily is not your typical mourner. She will not let the night that’s in it thwart her plans.
At her mother’s wake Lily suffers her way through the sea of Auntie Rachel’s sandwiches, cousin Aileen’s juicing recipes and Aoibheann’s woodland theme wedding plans, until an old face from her past arrives. Rapidly changing into her x-rated top and revelling in the disapproving whispers from the neighbours, Lily is not your typical mourner. She will not let the night that’s in it thwart her plans.
Irene Kelleher is an actor and published playwright. Her first play, Mary and Me, toured extensively to critical acclaim and is also an RTÉ produced radio play.
