Seventeen years ago in Leixlip, County Kildare, an aunt and three nieces made an extraordinary decision which seemed to defy explanation. They boarded themselves into their home and entered a suicide pact that lasted 40 days.
We didn't know them. We weren't there. We have no idea what they said. We are just putting words in their mouths.
Lippy was widely regarded as one of the most extraordinary works to come out of Ireland in 2013, and was the winner of two OBIE Awards in New York, a Fringe First, and the Irish Times Award for Best Production.
Performed in English with Czech surtitles.
