As part of the upcoming 2014 Dublin Theatre Festival, the Abbey Theatre presents Our Few and Evil Days, a new play by Mark O’Rowe.
Written and directed by Mark O’Rowe, one of Ireland’s finest contempoary playwrights, the play tells the chilling story of Adele (Charlie Murphy) and her parents, Michael (Ciarán Hinds) and Margaret (Sinéad Cusack), who are visited by a stranger and forced to confront the terrifying nature of their relationship.
Although Adele and her parents have always been close, their recent closeness has been tainted by an increasing sense of mistrust and this unnerving, yet deeply human story, examines the limits of devotion.
O’Rowe’s previous plays include Terminus (Abbey Theatre 2007), Made in China (Abbey Theatre 2001) and Crestfall (Gate Theatre 2003). His screenplays include Intermission (Company of Wolves 2004) and Boy A (Channel 4 2007). The Dublin born playwright, screenwriter and director has also won a number of awards for his work, including an IFTA and the Irish Times Theatre Award for Best New Play.
The play also stars Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, most well-known for his role as Nidge in the RTÉ drama, Love/Hate and Ian Lloyd Anderson, who has also starred in Love/Hate amongst many other television and stage roles.
