The Wren The Wren

Anne Enright / Owen Roe Aoife Duffin Anne Enright
Nell - funny brave and so much loved - is a young woman with adventure on her mind. As she sets out into the world she finds her family history hard to escape. For her mother Carmel Nell's leaving home opens a space in her heart where the turmoil of a lifetime begins to churn. And across the generations falls the long shadow of Carmel's famous father an Irish poet of beautiful words and brutal actions. This is a meditation on love: spiritual romantic darkly sexual or genetic. A generational saga that traces the inheritance not just of trauma but also of wonder it is a testament to the glorious resilience of women in the face of promises false and true. Above all it is an exploration of the love between mother and daughter - sometimes fierce often painful but always transcendent.
