A radical staging of how we got here, and how much we care
We are fuck ups and we are fucking it up.
There’s dust in our mouths, we’re breaking our windows, we can’t remember who we’re voting for.
We’ve collapsed all our veins so we're standing up and shouting, we’re bailing out, we’re up and on, we’re on, we’re gone.
WE’RE GETTING THE FUCK OUT OF HERE.
We're reefing off our rings and buying more gear.
HEROIN is a radical staging of how we got here, and how much we care.
HEROIN is the story you were never told about the new republic, of the person you never saw, of what you built and them demolished. It’s the big one, the bad one, the one you never thought you’d try. It’s everything that ever happened to us, the words that were never spoken and how the ones we voted for, kicked us in the teeth. Grace Dyas’s new play is an explosion of the social history of Heroin in Ireland over the last forty years.
