These Halcyon Days Onsdag 30 november – GEST
Gothenburg English Studio Theatre presents the Scandinavian premiere of These Halcyon Days by Deirdre Kinahan. A funny, touching, life-affirming play about facing our fears, told with wry humour and humanity.
Seán sits alone in a nursing home, abandoned by his memories, when in storms Patricia, a feisty woman with a zest for life. She brings music, laughter and hope with her and an unforeseen relationship develops, by turns charming and combative, tender and witty. A tale of friendship and adventure, a glorious celebration of the human spirit against the odds.
These Halcyon Days was awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival and nominated Best New Play in the Irish Times Theatre Awards 2012.
Kinahan is one of Ireland’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights and her work is produced regularly both in Ireland and on the International stage.
