THE SHAPE OF METAL explores the life and work of a scupltor and her complex and often difficult relationship with her two daughters, Judith and Grace. On the eve of the opening of a permanent exhibition of her work at the Museum of Modern Art, the world-renowned sculptor Nell Jeffrey and her daughter Judith strggle to come to terms with the disappearance of Grace, who walked out of her mother's studio thirty years before. Through cruel twists of fate, mother and daughter are forced to confront the events of the past, and exorcise its unquiet ghosts. First presetned in 2003 at Dublin's Abbey Theatre.
