On a seemingly ordinary evening an Irish family sit down to tea. The difference tonight is that Nial is home - back from prison having committed a dark crime many years earlier with some news to share and a conscience to clear. Fast, witty and frighteningly real; Moment takes you on journey through trauma wrapped up in tablecloths and teacake and asks what happens to a family when a child is killed and how does it feel when itís your child that does the killing?
Michael Coveney - 1 March 2011
A sour-sweet second of madness and murder lies at the heart of Moment, a slowly enthralling play by Deirdre Kinahan, co-presented at the Bush by Tall Tales and the Solstice Arts Centre of County Meath, that proves the old forces of guilt and grisly spiritual retribution are not dead in Irish drama; Eugene O’Neill walks abroad.
Mother is on the pills, sisters are at loggerheads, and black sheep brother’s on his way home with an English girl. But why is everyone so jumpy? Whose is the skeleton in the cupboard?
That of a twelve-year old girl, it transpires, best friend of elder sister Niamh Lynch (Maeve Fitzgerald) who’s warming up for the support role in The Beauty Queen of Leenane by caring for mother (Deirdre Donnelly), while nurse Ciara (Kate Nic Chonaonaigh) raises her own family with tiler Dave (Karl Quinn), and brother Nial (Ronan Leahy) re-builds his shattered life as a painter in London and Madrid.
