Halcyon Days

22nd March @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

€14 – €18

Starring Bryan Murray (Fair City, Irish RM and Bread) and Una Crawford (Fair City).

Patricia has a zest for life and men when she is thrust together with Sean, who is languishing in a nursing home. They form a funny and spiky relationship, but is friendship the most important thing?

Their emerging friendship gives voice and emotion to the complexities of older people. Music and dance are neatly incorporated in this humorous and touching play, from one of Ireland’s leading playwrights – recent hits include Rathmines Road, The Unmanageable Sisters and the internationally renowned Moment.
