“I bit into your heart and I chewed on it slowly like a connoisseur. I swallowed it. I remember thinking it was an especially small heart and easy to digest. But no matter what I did you wouldn’t die.”
It is Day One of the newly formed Truth and Reconciliation Commission for Northern Ireland at Stormont.
As Sandra Richardson prepares to take her seat on the Commission, her long lost sister Teeni explodes into the chamber and attacks the South African chairwoman, Dikeledi Mashiane. Deep in the heart of the Northern Irish Parliament, overshadowed by the legacy of hurt, Sandra and Teeni must fight through decades of violence, anger and denial to discover if reconciliation is possible on the pathway to peace.
Everything Between Us is a dramatic, dark, unflinching comedy written by Northern Ireland’s boldest contemporary writer.
