By Shane Mac an Bhaird


Melt was presented as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival, 2017 and was performed in Smock Alley Theatre from September 28th to October 8th, 2017. 

Let something else speak.

Antarctica. A polar research station. Boylan, an Irish scientist of the old school, is studying something hidden deep in the ice sheet. A young, ambitious, cock-sure assistant arrives, but they have more to contend with than each other.

Melt is an exploration at the limits of the human experience and a belch from the dark throat of the imagination. In a changing climate, Mac an Bhaird’s new play takes a jaunt on the edge of the abyss. 

This production was awarded the following:

Nomination: 2018 Zebbie Awards Best Theatre Script- Shane Mac an Bhaird
