Sunday Afternoon by the Sea in Argèles...

 

For M (1948-2012)

 

Sitting on her wingchair

between the laurel rose bush

and the pompoms of pampas grass,

facing the bay between her and home,

what’s behind her dark glasses is reflected

in the passing fair, the carnival of a Sunday.

La Reine Claude, a collaborative play by some of our finest writers

The Irish Times, in association with Dublin Theatre Festival, devised the Arc, a project that saw 10 playwrights contribute to one play, with each adding a few pages to what had gone before.

Tom Murphy kicked things off with an opening scene for a play he called La Reine Claude. Enda Walsh then took up the baton, followed by Deirdre Kinahan, Sonya Kelly, Stacey Gregg, Kate Heffernan, Bush Moukarzel, Brokentalkers, Genevieve Hulme-Beaman and Michael West. Each part was published on irishtimes.com, with the exception of the final part (by Michael West) which is printed here, with the full script in all its chaotic glory.
