Second Chance | Scene and Heard 2019

A different sort of love story

They say a grandchild is life’s biggest second chance. Join Idir Mná and Lakedaemon as they apply a gender lens on a universal love.

I was lucky to meet some really lovely people at The Attic Studio. Ken Rogan was one such person. Ken is also really talented. His gift lies in catching the essence of love in a truly poetic yet everyday conversation. One of the things we have in common is our love for a grandparental figure. These ladies aren’t our grannies. They aren’t our mothers. But they are incredibly special and were pivotal in raising us to be the people we are today.

I was trying to find a way to work with Ken in an Idir Mná capacity and thanks to the ingenious set-up the Scene and Heard Festival, we found a way.

Come and see Ken’s latest play before he finishes writing it. AND we get to play with gender too =) We will show you a beautiful love story of a grandmother/grandfather and grandson/granddaughter.

How does gender affect such a universal love story? What are the strongest aspects of this play when you take the experiment away? And where will this story go from here. YOU have the answers. Come. See. Tell.
