Thurles Drama Group: Gut by Frances Poet
Maddy and Rory are devoted parents to three- year old Joshua, committed to keeping him happy and safe. But when an everyday visit to a supermarket café turns into a far more troubling incident, their trust in those closest to them is shattered. They are flung into a well of paranoia. Gnawing away at Maddy is the possibility- just the possibility- that her toddler, Joshua, has been abused by a stranger. Such is her protective instinct that she now perceives everyone as a potential danger to her child. Maddy’s neurotic mistrust of the world leads her to a dark place. Gut is a taut psychological thriller that asks who can be trusted with our children, and is it more dangerous not to trust at all? The play is a vision of contemporary society where hyper -vigilance has replaced a sense of community and helpfulness.
