In the waking hours, before light and after dark, before love but after pain…lies truth. Where a land of secrets meets Atlantic waves, three generations shout their anger into the reflective sea.

Based on the author’s own short story Whispers on the Sand, Waking was set in Ireland as a man reluctantly goes home with his young son, only to encounter a strange young woman who brings confusion and emotional turmoil. Soon it becomes clear that at the very moment of crisis, reconciliation is the only sensible path to take.



This powerful production for teenage audiences toured schools.
