Solar Bones

By Mike McCormack in an adaptation by Michael West


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.

Winner of the Impac Dublin Literary Award 2018, Solar Bones is Mike McCormack’s multi-award-winning elegy to the merits of an ordinary life, spoken from an intermediate state between memory and nothingness.

Adapted by Michael West, directed by Lynne Parker, starring Stanley Townsend as Marcus Conway. Set & Lighting Design by Zia Bergin-Holly, Sound Design by Denis Clohessy, Costume Design by Kathy Strachan.
