An Grianán Theare is delighted to co-present the world premiere of acclaimed an Donegal playwright’s new play with the Gate Theatre.
Frank McGuinness, from Buncrana, wrote ‘The Visiting Hour’ during lockdown for the two renowned Irish actors Stephen Rea and Judith Roddy.
Caitríona McLaughlin, the newly appointed Artistic Director- designate of the Abbey Theatre, directs the production.
This moving new play about an Irish father (Stephen Rea) and daughter (Judith Roddy) at visiting hour in a nursing home during the pandemic, will be performed and recorded in the Gate auditorium, and streamed to audiences on April 22nd, 23rd and 24th at 7.30pm.
The play quietly observes a daughter visiting her elderly father in his nursing home. His mind is beginning to wander, but conversations about the past can be dangerous, and family memories can look very different, depending on who is telling the story.
The play is being presented in conjunction with An Grianán’s partner venues in the Nasc Network.
