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
