Robert Armstrong’s painting, The Meeting, is on the cover of Pale Sister, a new publication by Colm Tóibín. Pale Sister, written by Tóibín for Irish actress Lisa Dwan, is a dramatisation of the voice of Ismene, the sister of Antigone, who recounts her sister’s defiance of the king as pressures mount on Ismene herself to act to vindicate her sister, or even follow her example. The world premiere of Pale Sister takes place at The Gate Theatre from October 31st.
