Solar Bones by Mike McCormack

Something Different, in association with Kilkenny Arts Festival and Mermaid Arts Centre, presents: Solar Bones by Mike McCormack. Supported by Rough Magic Theatre Company.

Marcus Conway has come home to his kitchen in Louisburgh Co. Mayo. Everything seems normal, yet he is haunted by the feeling that nothing is quite right. Poring obsessively over the details of his relationships, his world and his work as an engineer brings him closer to an understanding of how the things and people he loves have come together, and how they have and must inevitably come apart.

Winner of the Impac Dublin Literary Award 2018, Solar Bones is Mike McCormack’s multi-award winning elegy to the merits of an ordinary life, spoken from an intermediate state between memory and nothingness. It is adapted by Michael West and directed by Lynne Parker and features Stanley Townsend as Marcus.

Funded by the Arts Council’s Project Awards Scheme.
