The Words Are There



Ronan Dempsey

production team

Mick awaits Trish in his seaside bedsit in dreamy Bettystown, Ireland. They’ve agreed to start over again, so it’s party time! Will it be bubbles for a happy ever after or will sparks fly? Life has left Mick speechless, but in his silence lies a story. Amidst childhood falsehoods, Mick sifts through fragmented memories as he struggles to find the words for a very important day.

The Words Are There sensitively but powerfully explores a modern day taboo subject. The play sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe, earning multiple 5 star reviews, was shortlisted for the prestigious Edinburgh Bobby Award and was named a Top 5 Edinburgh show by The List Magazine.
