In a handball alley between three concrete walls, a conversation is taking place between a hurler, an artist and a musician. Timmy is contemplating life outside the institution that raised him: the GAA. Must he go back to fully understand? Why are emotions suppressed for a stronger exterior? Can we talk about this? A new show written and performed by Timmy Creed with visual artist David Mathúna and electronic musician Chris Somers. Directed by Gina Moxley.
