The Lost Field
Raccoon and The Exit Wound
Meridian’s double bill touring package combines two one-act plays dealing with families sundered and re-united in bizarre circumstances.
Raccoon, by Thomas Hall, tells the story of Saoirse who is offered the chance to re-construct her past and her future as a result of a chance encounter in the café where she works. This show played recently at Bewleys Café Theatre to packed houses and critical acclaim.
The Exit Wound, by Johnny Hanrahan, creates an intense ritual of return for an errant trad singer/storyteller who has been on the run from his wife and children for over forty years. The Exit Wound began life at Cork’s Triskel Arts Centre in 2006, but the two shows have been presented as a double bill since May 2007 and have been performed nationwide at formal and non-formal theatre venues.
Raccoon is a one-woman story telling piece told to an audience gathered in a café or bar setting. Two actors at either end of a long table at which the audience sits perform The Exit Wound. This double bill presents two immensely satisfying shows at a minimal cost and virtually no technical requirements. Each of the shows last approximately 55 minutes and between the shows, the audience can enjoy a delicious meal specially prepared for the event. Ticket price includes admission to both shows and dinner.
