The Abbey Theatre

When morality goes out the door anything can happen!

It’s the nineties. It’s small town Ireland. Vera’s back.

The O’Tooles are at each other’s throats. Vera has inherited the family hotel. But what are her plans?

Alone in the world, she takes drastic action; locking herself in the hotel with her brother-in-law and Finbar Reilly her unlikely childhood sweetheart, in tow. ‘What other society, town, civilised country would put up with it?’

Welcome to the world created by legendary playwright Tom Murphy. For over 40 years, his plays have probed the Irish psyche. This long-awaited revival of The Wake is a critique of the materialism of Irish life.

Audio-described and captioned performance: Saturday 23rd July, 2pm
