Triple Fringe First, Olivier, and Herald Angel award winners Fishamble and Pat Kinevane present Before, a new play with much music, set in Clery’s of Dublin on the very day this iconic department store shuts – for good. Pontius is inside, trying to choose a gift for his estranged daughter whom he hasn’t seen for almost 20 years. He will meet her in an hour. Some folk are impossible to buy for... ‘Ireland’s excellent Fishamble’ (Guardian). 'A real showstopper’ **** (Irish Times). ‘A singular pleasure’ **** (Sunday Business Post). Supported by Culture Ireland.
