From the team that brought you "Forgotten," "Underneath" and the Olivier Award-winning "Silent," "Before" is a new play with much music, set in Clery’s of Dublin, on the very day this iconic department store shuts - for good.

"Before" was commissioned by Fishamble and has been in development with the support of the Arts Council, National Theatre Studio (London), Pavilion Theatre, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Georganne Aldrich Heller, Robert Leroy, and The Strollers Touring Network.
