A premonition of impending disaster precedes a collision between the conscious and subconscious lives of two married couples. Hidden fantasies and passions conflict with the calls of friendship and fidelity. The characters' everyday existences and their struggles to accept mortality provide the backdrop to Marble's exploration of the tragedy of dying of an empty heart.

Marble was first performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, on 10 February 2009.
