CreativeMornings: Childhood | Hold Your Tongue; Hold Your Dead

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Ahead of director and performer Nick Boraine‘s talk at CreativeMornings Johannesburg next Friday, we’ve been reading up on some of the groundbreaking work being explored by his friends at the Global Arts Corps. Today, we’re sharing a review of their play “Hold Your Tongue; Hold Your Dead”, which last year enjoyed a four-week residency at ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage in Boston, MA.

“Hold Your Tongue” follows the lives of two intersecting families as they struggle to find happiness, or any sort of resolution, in post-conflict Northern Ireland. The script and actors treated their material with a sincerity that allowed the overall atmosphere of the culture to pervade the production.


Read the full text of the review here, or find out a little more about the play on the GAC website.
