Close To The Sun
The Corps Ensemble / Written by Philip Doherty
Perth, Australia – home to a generation of lost children of Ireland, an isolated city in a land of myth and music. Irishman Colin prepares for his wedding to Australian sweetheart, Sophie. But things take a turn when his estranged brother Rory appears, bringing demons from their shared past. In this new ensemble play by Philip Doherty, two ancient cultures clash in an epic battle for one Irishman’s loyalty. Will Colin remain in this parched paradise or return to the lush land of his childhood? You know what they say, you can’t go back to a place that doesn’t exist anymore.
