Portia Coughlanby Marina Carr
Beautiful and blessed with a wealthy, adoring husband and three young sons, Portia Coughlan would seem to have it all, but grief over the drowning of her twin brother, Gabriel, fif-teen years ago in the Belmont River continues to torment her and prevents her from being the mother and wife she wishes she could be. Meanwhile, the confining village of Belmont that Portia calls home is populated by hilarious, brazen and cantan-kerous characters. From Portia to her husband, Raphael, to her vicious-tongued octogenarian granny, Blaize, to her loving aunt, the ex-prostitute Maggie-May, Marina Carr's characters are exquisitely drawn and profoundly human.
