Burying Your Brother

Tom and the pavement

ilkenny Youth Theatre had been developing a reputation for its innovative choice of plays and excellent production standards! Having carefully chosen the script for their main production in 2009 the KYT senior members (13-18 year olds) chose Jack Thorne’s Burying Your Brother in the Pavement, a vibrant and provocative play about grief, family, love and growing up.

Tom’s brother Luke is dead, killed by a broken bottle to the neck. They were never friends. It’s an odd decision to try to bury Luke in the pavement… at the point where he was brutally murdered.

Directed by Ronan MacRaois it ran in The Barn from 22 – 25 April 2009
