Dublin, Summer 2002. Rents are high and traffic is heavy. A chance encounter sets off a game of emotional deception and manipulated identities. Grace needs Wendy. Wendy wants Jackson. Jackson doesn’t know who he is.
Still is the winning entry from Fishamble’s new play competition, in association with Temple Bar Properties, to create a new site-specific theatre piece as part of ‘Diversions’, a summer-long festival of free outdoor cultural events. Incorporating live performance, projected images and original soundscape,Still is a quirky exploration
of discontent, photography and fruit machines.

A playful, witty and insightful reflection…Haslett’s writing is very original and daring…a very remarkable play’ The Examiner
