From the multi-award winning writer of Beatlebone and City of Bohane
Following the success of its world premiere in the Everyman, Kevin Barry’s dark comedy, Autumn Royal returns. Set on the northside 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?
