About this product
- DescriptionThe Big Sea is based on the French Medieval Mardi Gras play Le Bataille de Charnau contre Caresme. Christophe, Caresme and Charnau are on a cancer ward. To pass the time they play games. The line between game and reality starts to blur and soon they find themselves on a journey into the unkwn: Columbus's journey to the New World. In Vinegar and Brown Paper Jill is an artist recently returned to Dublin and Jack is her stand-up comedian boyfriend. As Jill tries to reconcile herself to her past through her work, Jack's career starts to take off. The play charts the collapse of a relationship through soap operas, football, the Dutch Masters and Christ's walk to Calvary. It was first produced by the Abbey Theatre, Dublin.
