Duration 90 minutes – 2 Acts
Casey, at twenty years of age, is suffering from a terminal illness. But death is not an issue compared with her everyday problems. Through intimate dialogues filled with tension and unrest, we unravel Casey’s relationship with those closest to her – Samantha, her best friend; Alfio, her boyfriend; and Mary, his grandmother. And Casey’s father: the childhood nightmare that resurfaces. The past, savage and cruel, seems to haunt her to this day. Ma Rridx Immur explores life, love, anger, and death. The future? A distorted dream.
Ma Rridx Immur is written by Leanne Ellul, featuring Ruth Borg, Ryan Cutajar, Marta Vella and Josette Ciappara. Directed by Jimmy Grima.
