Four Rivers presents: A Stage Reading of Small Things Like These Described by The Guardian as sharing “its properties with the very best of her stories,” Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan will be presented at Wexford Arts Centre in a staged reading by Four Rivers. Directed by Ben Barnes and accompanied with original music by Eleanor McEvoy, Small Things Like These, a Booker Prize nominated novel, is set in 1985 in a Co Wexford town. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal and timber merchant, faces his busiest season. As he does the rounds, he feels the past rising up to meet him- and encounters the complicit silences of a people controlled by the Church. An unforgettable and beautifully written story of hope, quiet heroism and tenderness from the author of Foster.
