Our Few and Evil Days
The Abbey Theatre presents a new play from one of Ireland’s most exciting contemporary playwrights, Mark O’Rowe.
Adele and her parents have always been close. But recently, that closeness has been tainted by an increasing sense of mistrust. Tonight, a visit from a stranger will force them to confront the terrifying reality of their relationship.
This chilling yet deeply human story about the limits of devotion is written and directed by Mark O’Rowe and stars Ian Lloyd Anderson, Sinéad Cusack, Ciarán Hinds, Charlie Murphy and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor.
Part of the 2014 Dublin Theatre Festival.
