Edinburgh Festival premiere for Rough Magic's new 'discovery': first-time Irish playwright Morna Regan and her gripping family drama involving three generations of women A story of five women from three generations. Ruth returns to rural Ireland from America, where she's become a successful businesswoman. Her arrival rattles the skeletons in the family cupboard. Her widowed mother is being driven to distraction by her own demented mother, Doddie, who is convinced that Ruth is Doddie's sister who got pregnant and eloped with a GI only to be abandoned in Liverpool...Resentments rise to the surface as Ruth comes to realise there's no going back...Full of humour and vitality, this portrait of a family of women grappling with the return of the 'prodigal daughter' will strike a chord in audiences everywhere. The female protagonist and the Irish setting make for a fresh slant on a familiar theme...Commissioned by Rough Magic, Ireland's leading company devoted to new writing, Midden will premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in August before touring Ireland and playing at the Dublin Theatre Festival in October.
