Arriving at Bewley’s Café first floor, you are put sitting alone at a table and given a set of headphones. The audio play kicks off: you are invited to open the bag in front of you and do various things with its contents. In a story written by John King and Finbarr Doyle, you hear about a young boy coming to Dublin with his mum to visit his ailing grandmother in hospital.
