Maura Walsh chats to Jeda De Bri Artistic Director and Co-writer ahead of her play Tryst which is running at the Project Arts Centre from 3 – 14 April

Tryst is a blistering piece of original Irish theatre, a piercing and timely contemporary drama that explores the price of curiosity, the limits of friendship and the complications of sex. Examining crisis, bodily autonomy and the politics of choice through the lens of a complex multi-directional relationship

Matt and Steph are hungover. Their wedding is in a week. Things are under control. Mostly…..But when their best friend Rachel arrives unannounced, she reveals a secret that threatens to unravel everything.  Now they must deal with the consequences of their messy nights and bad decisions.  Who do you blame when your life is derailed? And how far will you go to get it back on track?
