Revival of early Marina Carr play is full of depth and passion 

The Mai premiered on the Peacock stage in 1994 and though that production was excellent, the play felt too large for the cramped space. Decadent Theatre, under the direction of Andrew Flynn, have given it a bang-up revival, with an expansive set by Ciaran Bagnall, all diagonals and aspirational curves in beige and polished oak. The Mai, a school principal, built the fancy house overlooking a Midlands lake to lure her wandering husband Robert back to the family nest.
