June 9 – 26
Solas Nua produces the Washington premiere of Maz and Bricks by Eva O’Connor, an award-winning new playwright from Ireland. Directed by Artistic Director of Theatre, Rex Daugherty, this timely play was an audience favorite from our play reading series, now taking center stage at The Atlas Performing Arts Center. Maz and Bricks is a passionate, angry, funny and touching play which tells the story of two young people who meet over the course of a day in Dublin. Maz is attending a ‘Repeal the Eighth’ demonstration, while Bricks is going to meet the mother of his young daughter. As the day unfolds, the two become unlikely friends, changing each other in ways they never thought possible. Maz and Bricks delves deep into the issue of reproductive rights in Ireland to ask what does it mean to be alive in Ireland today and what really makes it all worthwhile?
