Commissioned to mark the company’s 25th anniversary, The Same by Enda Walsh saw sisters Catherine and Eileen Walsh cast together for the first time.
Two women both named Lisa meet. But it becomes apparent to the younger woman that she has in fact met an older version of herself.
Corcadorca staged this premiere at the decommissioned Cork prison premises. The audience wandered through a series of rooms with installations depicting elements of the characters lives and stories before arriving into a recreation room for the performance.
