(Peter Crawley’s article appeared in the Irish Times, 9/28.)
“The normal thing is just not going to work for me, you know?” So says Marya, a young woman wondering what to do with her long-stalled life in Dick Walsh’s intriguing new play for Pan Pan.
In Annabell Rickerby’s fascinating performance, an artful display of artlessness, Marya need not be especially worried about normality. A figure in leopard-skin leggings and an elaborate leg-brace, she shares a house with her cantankerous, invasive father (Des Nealon) in an isolated part of the country, praying to her dead mother, taking advice from a sullen but sanguine friend (Una McKevitt).
