Irish Premiere. Presented in Association with Lane Productions at Andrew’s Lane Theatre.
This Pulitzer prize-winning drama explores the murky waters of forty-something marital breakdown and the consequences it has not only for the couple but for their friends, whose plan has been ‘to grow old and fat together, the four of us’. Designer Ferdia Murphy was nominated for an Irish Times award for his beautiful and elegant set design. It effortlessly conveyed both a summer retreat in Martha’s Vineyard, where four friends celebrate love and friendship and a comfortable home in Connecticut on a snowy night, where one love finally dies.
