Award-winning novelist Christine Dwyer Hickey makes her debut as a playwright this March at the Project Arts Centre with her play, Snow Angels.
Christine (pictured below) is the author of 6 novels and many short stories and her work has been short listed for many prestigious awards.
Her 2011 novel The Cold Eye of Heaven won the Irish Novel of the Year 2012 and was nominated for the IMPAC 2013 award, her 2009 novel Last Train from Liguria was nominated for the Prix L’Européen de Littérature and her 2004 novel Tatty was nominated for the Orange Prize and chosen as one of the 50 Irish Books of the Decade.
Snow Angels, described as both a ghost story and psychological thriller is a modern drama that is filled with suspense and mystery. It tells the story of two men who find themselves snowbound in an isolated house just outside the city.
Through black humour, the play questions the current generation of men in Ireland who find themselves bound by the expectations of society, women, family, as well as their own expectations of themselves.
Directed by Rosemary McKenna, with music by Denis Hickey, Snow Angels stars Desmond Hickey, Ger Hough and Michael Hough.
Snow Angels runs from Wednesday the 5th March to Saturday 15th March at the Project Arts Centre. Performances are at 8.15pm with one matinee performance on Saturday 15th March at 2.30pm.
