Aufmacher
When Mary Kelly, an Irish actress and playwright, performs "Two For a Girl", we are struck by her power, poetry, and passion, by a play about travelllers and farmers in rural Ireland after 1946. Telling stories in Ireland means you step into big footsteps, and Mary Kelly can fill them: "When a Traveller tells a tale, they're listened to."

Josie Connors, a young Irish Traveller, sets up camp with her nomadic family on the edge of Ryan's farm. When by a love affair she crosses one of the deeply entrenched cultural lines between her Irish (ethnic minority) travelling community and the Irish (settled) community, we are catapulted through decades of unthinkable consequences. "Stuck between two worlds" in abject isolation and poverty, Josie keeps moving, presented with the most compelling reason of all to survive. "Two for a Girl" is an homage to the intimacy and simplicity of traditional Irish theater, a style that can be as affecting on the back of a cart or the corner of a pub as it can on a formal stage. As Mary Kelly seamlessly embodies the five main characters, you will be drawn across generations and to every corner of Ireland in this unique look at identity, freedom and loss when two distinct Irish communities collide. This is a play about the transformative power and absolute necessity of being heard and bearing witness. "Two for a Girl" is an homage to the intimacy and simplicity of traditional Irish theater, a style that can be as affecting on the back of a cart or the corner of a pub as it can on a formal stage.

"It is hard not to be struck by the raw emotion generated by Mary Kelly and Noni Stapleton's outstanding work - Two for a Girl.... this is theatre stripped down to its basics and it works." Sunday Business Post Five Stars *****

Performed by Mary Kelly | Directed by Erman Jones | Lighting Design by Katri Kuusimäki

Mary Kelly entführt uns in ihrem "herausragenden Werk" (Sunday Business Post, Fünf Sterne) "Two for a girl" ins Irland der Nachkriegszeit, in den culture clash zwischen Travellers (den irischen Nomaden) und einem seßhaften Farmer, in einen Theaterabend voll rauer Poesie und ungeschminkten Schicksalen. Unbedingt sehenswert!
