By Kevin Barry (Beatlebone and City of Bohane)
Following the success run of its world premiere last year, Autumn Royal by Kevin Barry returns to the Everyman!
Set on the north side of Cork city, this play is about life and death, love and hate, hysterical dependency, jealousy, rage, horror, and homicidal notions – or, in other words, it’s a play about a family.
May and Timothy are looking after the father – the father has long since taken to the bed. Their own lives are curtailed, closed down, and they’re not getting any younger. Should they stay or should they go?
★★★★ “A scathing searchlight on wishful thinking, enlivened by the writer’s characteristic ebullience of language” The Irish Times (click HERE to read full review)
“this is a brilliant play, full of wit and sentiment” Irish Independent
“An engaging, quirky and inventive night of theatre” Exeunt Magazine (click HERE to read full review)
