The Words Are There explores what for many remains a taboo subject.
Mick awaits Trish in his seaside flat in dreamy Bettystown. Life has left him speechless, but in his silence lies a story. Amidst childhood falsehoods and fragmented memories he struggles to find the words for a very important day. Sensitively and powerfully exploring abuse and domestic violence, especially domestic violence towards men, The Words Are There explores what for many remains a taboo subject.
‘Don’t deal in regret. If you only see one new show this month, go see “The Words Are There.” It is soul stirringly good.’ – TheArtsReview.com
