MORNING, AFTERNOoN AND EVENING
Three Plays, One Story…
Set in Northern Ireland, and amongst the Northern Irish diaspora in Europe, the lives of three very different characters (all movingly played by Hinds), unexpectedly, and fatefully, reconnect… The birth of a child may create new possibilities for love, yet this fragile opportunity may just as easily slip through their hands.
Charged with moments of poignant tenderness and visceral emotion, these ingeniously interlocking plays explore the bonds of childhood, and the human yearning for love and family.
FRINGE THE SCOTSMAN✪hotshow
This story of a pair of estranged brothers who have fled from their roots in Northern Ireland makes a subtle but striking acting debut for veteran Irish director, Andy Hinds.
His performances is deft and subtle, hinting at undercurrents of suppressed emotion which occasionally break the surface. His writing has the kind of subtlety and vividness that always suggests there is more going on. ... In two short pieces, he manages to capture two complex, wounded lives, and the ripples which spread from one family into the wider world.

... intense, interlocking family dramas ... tightly focuses and emotional ... minutely observed, universal human stories ...
COMPLETE GUIDE TO EDINBURGH FESTIVAL
Hinds' performance is never less than perfection and the monologues are wonderfully crafted.
Taken together, they present a moving story of life, loss and love, at once familiar and brand new.
IRISH SUNDAY INDEPENDENT
Seriously impressive ... The writing is quite fine, sometimes startling so ... a moving and impressive piece of work... a sobering, intelligent piece of theatre, beautifully performed.
