www.houseplays.comClare leads the enviable life of big houses and privilege, or so it seems…Raised in a big Georgian house in Ireland in the lap of privilege, Clare is finding that her enviable life is breaking apart at the seams.
 
Welcome to the world of pop-up plays, where drama erupts just when you least expect it. The whole world's a stage and all the men and women merely players, as the bard poet declared. Follow us in the journey of Clare's story as she makes Cavan County Museum her home and the audience her guests.
 
 
Fancy a different night out.   Funny! Humorous, bittersweet and a little tragic, the story has the audience laughing throughout the show.
 
 
The Reviews:
 
“Great performers. Great venue and thoroughly great fun! ” - Sara & Nick Nicholson
 
“A fabulously play by a truly gifted playwright - a story that is a journey of emotions, reality, success, failure, fear,, misconceptions, shock and loyalty.” - Sinead Trainor
