Brian Quin and Grainne Rafferty of Drogheda Creative Writers.
This Thursday night, 18th September, is Culture Night. Activities have unfortunately been curtailed by the Coronavirus but Brian Quinn and Grainne Rafferty of Drogheda Creative Writers will be going online for a reading of Brian’s topical new play “Quarantine” which explores the effect that lockdown has had on relationships.
Everyone has their own story to tell. Take Terri and Adrian, a normal everyday couple, who head into the Month long lockdown optimistic that they have a strong relationship to get them through it.
How strong is it though, as they find that it’s not just a month but longer? The cracks are there for each of them to see so clearly in this stage of their adventure.
In Quarantine we visit the couple on different days to see how they are coping with the pressure of two people living on top of each other. Some days are better than others. Will they survive until the end, as a couple?
