Review by Philip Fisher

If it is possible to imagine attending a stranger’s perpetual therapy session for hours on end, that might be a reasonable representation of this play, for which no writer is credited.

An Irish character called Feidlim Cannon played by an actor called Feidlim Cannon takes us through a few incidents in his life with repetition a primary feature of the session

He is assisted by a woman playing Feidlim’s mother and another man who spends far too long with his head trussed up in bandages over a boxing head guard.

The main topics of discussion are a dead father and brother but for the most part, the audience is left observing nothing happening painfully slowly.

There must be a point but it passed this critic by.
