Bernie happily cares for her ailing mother Bridge in a ramshackle house, slightly outside the community, both geographically and mentally. Forces outside the house attempt to control her choices and her future, while she desires to retain her childish status quo. The question becomes, is it easier to submit? Or to rail against the powers-that-be, no matter how futile the attempt at autonomy may be?

Irish Repertory Theatre’s New Play Development Program includes table reads, staged readings, workshops and commissions from voices that fulfill Irish Rep’s mission and tell stories of Irish and Irish-American people of all races, genders, abilities, and orientations. Following the success of the inaugural New Works Summer Festival spotlighting LGBTQ+ voices in June 2023, the New Works Festival returns this November with five new play readings spotlighting female voices. This program enables us to hear new work aloud with an audience and discover new plays and musicals for possible future production.
