Theatre: On Raftery’s Hill at the Abbey (audio described and captioned performance)

12 May 2018 (Past)

Abbey Theatre

“Granny was talkin about gorillas earlier. That’s whah we are, gorillas in clothes pretendin to be human”

Red Raftery is a powerful man and used to getting what he wants. He owns 300 acres of the finest land this side of the Shannon and west of the Pale, where he lives with three generations of his family.

But there is something rotten on Raftery’s hill. The fields are full of animal carcasses and there is a stench in the air.

Set in a close-knit farming community, Marina Carr’s darkly comic and explosive play pushes a family to the limits.

Written by: Marina Carr
Directed by: Caitríona McLaughlin
