A Girl and Her God by Joanne Fitzgerald.
Em is a young Irish artist/sales rep, on the verge of mental breakdown when she is visited by a mysterious figure claiming to be a Lugh, the Irish god of skills, talents, sun and storm, who suggests he might be able to help her decide what to do.
A Girl and Her God is a dark comedy drama. The aim of the play is to explore our relationship with art, with home and the people in our lives who influence us. It’s also about the mother-daughter dynamics and art teachers, and homesickness.
Its first rehearsed reading took place on Tuesday 29th August 2017, currently in development for production later in 2018.
