Woman

Synopsis of the book of Marina Carr's play:

Haunted by her dream of Cordelia and Lear, a woman confronts an elderly man, her lifelong antagonist and rival. During their passionate altercation he dismisses her success as a composer and demands she make the ultimate sacrifice: for him to flourish she, his protégée, must be silent. Five years later, she returns for a final and devastating encounter.

Michelle Gomez played the Woman and David Hargreaves played the Man.
