Late night taxis, teen discos, home nurses, Jewish launderettes, vigilantes, babies, immigrants, seagulls.
Citysong is a play, a poem and a chorus of voices showing three generations of a Dublin family on one day.
Intimate and sweeping, joyous and ridiculous, it's the modern-day Dublin's <i>Under Milk Wood</i> via <i>Metamorphoses</i> (not the book about the cockroach).
It's different things at different times, which makes sense seeing as it's about change.
Dylan Coburn Gray's play <i>Citysong</i>, winner of the 2017 Verity Bargate Award, premieres at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin in May 2019 before transferring to Soho Theatre, London.
This edition also contains the plays <i>Boys and Girls</i>, which won the Fishamble Best New Writing Prize at the Dublin Fringe and was nominated for the Stewart Parker Prize, and <i>Drawing Crosses on a Dusty Windowpane</i>.
