“My horse for your boy!”

During the bleakest of winters, at the end of a decade-long war. Maud is dragging a dead horse to the middle of nowhere. As she prepares to devour it, she makes a deal with an old man to take his starving grandson under her protection.

As her husband returns from the war, the struggle to start over turns into a second conflict and once again Maud is faced with her most bitter decision.

A numbing examination of the strength of the human condition in the face of extreme circumstances.

Midwinter was first presented at The Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in October 2004.

The Lir Academy presents Gradfest 2021 with the support of AIB.
