An unmarked grave containing the bodies of my great-grandfather, Owen Roe O’Neill, and his young daughter. A little further away lie the graves of all the other family members. All have tombstones and grave sites. Only Owen Roe has nothing.

Thus begins an exploration of ancestry – a weaving together of stories from the past and their resonances with the present. In Search of Owen Roe is a powerful and engaging piece of storytelling featuring a myriad of characters, an evocative sound design and richly nuanced text.
