You couldn't make it up
This is the closing scene of the Shellshock Café Show in Wexford Arts Centre -
where I tie the stories together by demonstrating the places and people mentioned.
It begins with the hometown shot on a misty quayfront -
and follows our heroine who emigrates to Germany in the 80's,
the hotels and characters,
through to London and half of Great Britain in the early 90's,
through bratwurst and bitter,
and home again,
as the call of the stones of the homeland,
was embedded in her like subliminal sound.
The soundtrack is Wandering by Lúnasa.
