REVIEW – CORMAC RICHARDS – 28 FEBRUARY 2020
"Amidst the glossy musicals, the gender-fluid productions of Shakespeare and the avant-garde diatribes it is good to know that out there, tucked away, is some excellent, honest theatre. It is a relief, a surprise and a joy.
The Coastguard by Marie Macneill and presented by Mundic Nation is a vivid, beautifully written and compellingly performed one-man play about coping with loss and life and is a theatrical treat...
The Coastguard is a rich, superbly crafted piece of theatre with a tour-de-force performance; it will live long in the memory."
