‘I want to see who I am, who I was. I want to live it all, fully and for first and final time.
Maybe we could do it together?’
‘BLISS’ is an audio storytelling experience that will guide you through the life and memories of Mary. By journeying into her past; Revisiting the places and moments that make her who she is, Mary must decide what her future holds and decide who she could be.
Written by Wicklow local Emily Gillmor Murphy, and voiced by some of Ireland’s finest acting talent, this audio experience is designed to be listened to while walking on Bray Seafront.
