A premonition of impending disaster precedes a collision between the conscious and subconscious lives of two married couples. Hidden fantasies and passions conflict with the calls of friendship and fidelity. The characters' everyday existences and their struggles to accept mortality provide the backdrop to MARBLE's exploration of the tragedy of dying of an empty heart.
"…passion and urgency…[Carr] is speaking to our times, even as she speaks of the eternal, existential predicament." —Dublin Miscellany. "It's an extraordinary examination of obsessive love, full of verbal explosions that concurrently make the blood run cold and yet are frighteningly recognisable as emotional possibilities." —Irish Independent. "Carr [is] the most consistently exciting and original voice in Irish theatre…" —Irish Times.
