Description

10 April 1998, Belfast. The Good Friday Agreement is signed, promising peace to Northern Ireland. Across the city, Kate receives a call from a desperate young woman, compelling her to return to a relationship she left in another life, and embark upon a journey which risks the uneasy peace she has since made for herself. A powerful, intimate, dream-like monologue shimmering with the vibrancy of life, This is Paradise explores what happens when one woman is asked to rescue the man who promised to destroy her – and how we can begin again.
