Melt by Shane Mac an Bhaird

Let something else speak.

Antarctica. A polar research station. Boylan, an Irish scientist of the old school, is studying something hidden deep in the ice sheet. A young, ambitious, cock-sure assistant arrives, but they have more to contend with than each other.

Melt is an exploration at the limits of the human experience and a belch from the dark throat of the imagination. In a changing climate, Mac an Bhaird’s new play takes a jaunt on the edge of the abyss.

Directed by Lynne Parker and presented as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival.
