This June, the Project Arts Centre showcases a new play, The Separation, a dark journey into the disintegration of the life of a Dublin family.
Written by Richard Molloy and starring Carrie Crowley, David Murray, Roxanna Nic Liam and Susan Stanley, the play is set in the lead up to Ireland’s historic divorce referendum of 1995. The Separation is a dark and unsettling insight into a marriage and a family that have broken apart.
Stephen Hanrahan brings home a younger female colleague on a Friday night but before anything can happen, his estranged wife and volatile daughter crash back into his life. Soon, repressed truths and painful secrets are out in the open.
The play is directed by Simon Evans, whose work in London includes a revival of Thom Pain at the Print Room, an acclaimed production of The Silence of the Sea at Trafalgar Studios and residencies at National Theatre, the Donmar Warehouse and the Bush Theatre.
The Separation runs from 2nd to the 14th June and performances are at 8.15pm. There is one matinee performance on 14th June at 2.30pm and a post show discussion with the writer and members of the cast and crew takes place on Monday 9th June. Tickets are priced at €15 (concessions available) and may be booked online.
