A play for anyone who has ever had to say goodbye.
Tue 1 – Sat 12 May | 8pm plus 3pm Sat matinees | Boys’ School
Join six year old Lily as she packs up her favourite worldly possessions.
She’s going to her Wendy House and once she gets there she’s never coming back.
Lily spends her life travelling between a rural Irish village and a large paediatric hospital in Dublin.
Through the delicate intertwining of her memories, Lily explores the struggles that families face in moments of trauma and the fearless power of childhood innocence and imagination.

About the company….
Dreamback is a newly established theatre collective founded by Rachel Bergin, Nadine Flynn and Claudia Kinahan. Dreamback’s aim is to make theatre that plays with form to investigate contemporary themes that resonate on a macro scale, through a micro lens.
Dreamback’s recent credits include ‘Patrick’, which played as part of The New Irish Playbook at Smock Alley, an extract from The Wendy House at Smock Alley’s Scene + Heard Festival 2017 and a rehearsed reading of ‘With Wolves’, written by Nadine Flynn at The New Theatre.
