We recently attended the opening night of AVIARY / WE REMAIN / -  a play, devised, written and performed by The Performance Project 2017 at UCD.


The cast of 19 students delivered an energetic, powerful, emotional and very moving performance, accurately depicting the turmoil, upheaval and complete devastation that families and friends experience when a loved one goes missing.


The play took us on a journey of friendship, fun, togetherness, growth and change and led us to a place of shock, suspicion, blame, unspoken words and a gaping question that all too often, when someone goes missing, remains unanswered; horrific silence, hanging in the air.


Andrea Scott’s skilful direction and attention to detail coupled with the professionalism and heartfelt performance of each cast member, made AVIARY / WE REMAIN / a piece of Theatre that will echo in the hearts and minds of all that see this piece.
