‘An unmarked grave containing the bodies of my great-grandfather, Owen Roe O’Neill, and his young daughter. A little further away lie the graves of all the other family members. All have tombstones and grave sites. Only Owen Roe has nothing.’
Thus begins an exploration of ancestry—a weaving together of stories from the past and their resonances with the present. In Search of Owen Roe is a powerful and engaging piece of storytelling featuring myriad characters, an evocative sound design and richly nuanced text.
