‘Keep me in sleeping, know never to part
If death should do us part’
Ciarán’s death marks the death of tradition. He took to the grave a stoneless ring that once held a diamond and once was Aisling’s. Ciarán died with what those men buried with him died for. His family awaits the beauty that buried him after he drowned in pursuit of her voice.
Ciarán’s Aisling sees the burying of an Irish legend. The simple life of song and sentiment is taken underground. We see the dead in mourning for a life of blissful ignorance, a love that outgrew death, a truth that upheld tradition and a diamond in the rough.
An original new play featuring original song compositions by Darren Yorke.
