The Arts Show: Jane McCarthy, writer of The Harvest at the New Theatre talks to Norma Burke

Life is sweet. Good job. Pretty wife. A nice house in the suburbs. Shame about the past, creeping up behind you…

Charlotte is back on track, thanks to support from her steadfast husband, Malcolm, and son, Evan. She thinks she’s found another lifeline in her new friend, Shane. But Shane knows more about her idyllic life than she realises. And just how to destroy it.

The Harvest is a tense new thriller from acclaimed playwright, Jane McCarthy, about second chances and second lives. What we do when we have them, and what we might do to take them from others.

“The world knows about me. It knows what I did and it doesn’t care anymore. But what about you? What about what you’ve done?”

Jane McCarthy, playright and New Writing Co-ordinator at the New Theatre chatted to Norma Burke about her upcoming play and her work for the theatre. Performances of The Harvest are on until June 23rd and you can book tickets here.
