Tilt (Paperback)

Ailis Ni Riain

-  

Three siblings, a girl and two boys, endlessly reiterate the terrible details of their childhood. They are trapped for ever in an obsessive need to remember and relive their treatment at the hands of a sadistic father who brutalised not only the three children but also his ever-uncomplaining wife - who herself eventually succumbed to the drink. Like the plays of "Beckett", to which "Tilt" pays homage, the atmosphere is oppressive but the author's love of the sound of words is somehow uplifting. Incantatory and hypnotic, this marks the debut of a very promising writing talent. "Tilt", a first play by an artist so far mainly active as a composer, is premiered by the Liverpool theatre company, The New Works (formerly LLT), in St George's Hall, Liverpool, before touring to Project Arts in Dublin and the Granary in Cork.
