In this surreal, inverted world, Christopher’s life pulls into focus and his rebirth is both arresting and comic. With allusions to classical myth, PILGRIM (Fishamble New Writing Award Nomination/ Manchester Theatre Award nomination) is a powerful comedy/ drama about a hard-edged youth coming of age on a pilgrimage home for the birth of his son.
