SYNOPSIS

An old man named Mack lives in a derelict town on the outskirts of The Baltic Sea with his two sons, Nero, Cero, and his last remaining daughter, Bettina. Mack’s wife, and five daughters have all been taken by human traffickers to be sold into the sex trade. Bettina dreams of a better life and Mack wants this for her, but understands all too well the inescapable inevitability of her fate. The plot is not based on conventional conflict of human wills but on the hopeless struggle of people against an impersonal society where women are seen only as objects. This play started as an adaptation of John Millington Synge’s, Riders to The Sea but I now see it as being in conversation with as it has morphed in to its own world scape with its own unique characters.
