The Morning After The Life Before – More International Dates!


Gúna Nua has been proud to present The Morning After The life Before by Ann Blake.

Following its success in Ireland, Canada and Brighton we are delighted to announce that The Morning After The Life Before will tour to the Liverpool Irish Festival in October and the 1st Irish Festival in New York in January.  There will be Irish dates coming up in 2019 so watch this space.

On a groggy Sunday morning, May 24th 2015, as 62% of Ireland is #hungoverforequality, Ann gets a text from her brother which brings the reality of a new Ireland into sharp focus. “How’s the morning after the life before?”

A personal tale and experience of Ireland before and after the referendum on Marriage Equality on May 22nd 2015, The Morning After The Life Before explores and attempts to answer the question in the text message.

With kind support from Limerick Arts Office Theatre Bursary and Fishamble’s New Play Clinic.

The proud winner of Outstanding Production at the London Ontario Fringe and of Best Enlgish Language Production at Montreal Fringe.
