The Spinning Heart

Donal Ryan

“This depicts Ireland, particularly small town Ireland, really well. It's accessible but says a lot about our culture, telling one story arising from the recent recession from a number of different perspectives.”

Caroline Sullivan , Ringsend


In the aftermath of Ireland’s financial collapse, dangerous tensions surface in an Irish town. As violence flares, the characters face a battle between public persona and inner desires. Through a chorus of unique voices, each struggling to tell their own kind of truth, a single authentic tale unfolds.
