Play: 'Family Plot'
Author: Darragh Carville

Synopsis of the play
Several generations of the Kerr family have died and are buried in the family plot. Unable to get on together in life, the disagreements and bitterness's continue in death. Full of black humour and shocking disclosures, this is an unusual look at family relationships and an exploration of the question: What comes after?

If using Sat Nav, be careful when inputting. There are at least three Ballyduffs in County Waterford. In particular, there is a village called Ballyduff about five miles from Waterford City. This is not us! Coordinates 52° 08' 51" N, 8° 03' 06" W will get you pretty near the correct Ballyduff! more
