Three Winters by Tena Štivičić

Three Winters is a big play, a complex layering of family dynamics within a politically unstable setting.

Three Winters by Tena Štivičić

In the year when Ireland celebrates the centenary of the 1916 Rising, The Lir Academy presents the Irish premiere of Tena Štivičić’s epic play which charts the troubled birth of another European nation. Set in 1945, 1990 and 2011, Three Winters is a family saga told through the female lineage. It is a story of relationships during different times but with the same core themes of family bonds, tenacity and overcoming adversity.

First performed at The National Theatre in London in 2014, Three Winters won Štivičić the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
