ITG: Our Few and Evil Days (5-9 Nov 2019)

Directed by Lyn Wainwright, and writted by Mark O’Rowe, this production will take place in the Petit théâtre Mercelis from 5-9 November 2019.

The play is set in Dublin in what appears to be a modern-day, middle-class home. It is a traditional dialogue play where the five characters speak to each other in the realistic style of normal conversation including pauses, interruptions and repetitions.

The play centres around a family; Michael the father, Margaret the mother and their daughter Adele (30’s).  Adele’s boyfriend (30’s probably Irish, another male (likely 30’s not necessarily Irish). All the characters in this play are complex. They all reveal secrets that make the audience constantly reassess both who they are and how they all relate to one another.

ITG: Our Few and Evil Days (5-9 Nov 2019)

Tickets

Our Few and Evil Days is a play about a family whose apparently normal life in a Dublin suburb conceals a dark secret. Adult themes (16+ advised).

Nothing is quite as it seems.

The unexpected and awkward arrival of the daughter’s new boyfriend unleashes a series of confessions that cross social and personal boundaries.

Mark O’Rowe’s finely balanced script draws you in weaving  together the lives of these intricate characters as it explores the sadness, guilt, love and passion that form the relationships within this family.

Described as “Powerful, compelling and utterly beautiful, Our Few and Evil Days is unlike anything seen on The Abbey Stage in recent times”, when it was first performed there (starring Ciarán Hinds and Sinéad Cusack) as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2014.

Tickets €18
