Blood in the Alley present the world premiere of A Safe Passage by Irene Kelleher

“It’s the age-old question, should you take a leap of faith? Will it bring fortune or folly? In Tarot, the Fool stands on the edge of a sea cliff, carefree and smiling. Sound familiar?”

New Year’s Eve 1979. Two strangers are thrown together at Inish Dúbh Lighthouse: Christy the Keeper, shining a ceaseless vigil for all at sea; and the young woman who does not want to be saved. Both have plans for the evening. Both seem to want the same thing. But as the storm rages and the tower door shuts, they must decide - to weather the storm together or take a leap of faith? Directed by Geoff Gould, A Safe Passage is a story of lost and found, of isolation, and the ultimate need for human connection..
