A beautifully simple debut play, premiered by The New Works theatre company.

A sister searches her brothers for empathy and answers to her family's self destruction. All three are trapped for ever in an obsessive need to remember and relive their treatment at the hands of a sadistic, brutalising father and of a mother overendowed with forbearance.

Ailis Ni Riain's play Tilt was first staged by The New Works theatre company in Liverpool, Cork and Glasgow in 2007.

Each rapid-fire phrase pummels the air in a series of blistering crescendos... building to a symphony fuelled by love and anger... anyone interested in serious theatre writing should flock to this perfectly formed miniature'


'Such delicate intensity that it feels as if the audience itself is holding its breath'

Irish Times

'A startlingly confident new Irish play'
