THE WENDY HOUSE
"A staggering joy to watch...For in the loveable Lily Featherstone, Claudia Kinahan has created the perfect little lady. And this little lady is a star. Who knows, Kinahan might well be one too."
A play for anyone who has ever had to say goodbye.
Join six year old Lily as she packs up her favourite worldly possessions.
She’s going to her Wendy House and once she gets there she’s never coming back.
Lily spends her life travelling between a rural Irish village and a large paediatric hospital in Dublin.
Through the delicate intertwining of her memories, Lily explores the struggles that families face in moments of trauma and the fearless power of childhood innocence and imagination.
