Solar Bones

By Mike McCormack in an adaptation by Michael West

2020, 2022

Marcus Conway has come home to his kitchen in Louisburgh Co. Mayo. Everything seems normal, yet he is haunted by the feeling that nothing is quite right. Poring obsessively over the details of his relationships, his world and his work as an engineer brings him closer to an understanding of how the things and people he loves have come together, and how they have and must inevitably come apart.

Mike McCormack’s multi-award-winning novel is brought to life by Stanley Townsend (Best Actor, Irish Times Theatre Awards) in a performance directed by Lynne Parker (Best Director, Irish Times Theatre Awards) in an adaptation by Michael West.
