The Hanging Gardens

‘Now we have a family, a rivalry, a purpose’

The Hanging Gardens is the first new play by Frank McGuinness at the Abbey Theatre in 14 years. It is an unflinching and familiar vision of the Irish family from one of the country’s most important playwrights.

A writer and his wife sit together in their garden. They are surrounded by a lifetime’s work; their home, their gardens and their children. Rachel wants to be congratulated on her pregnancy, Maurice is struggling for his father’s acceptance and Charlie needs his sacrifices to be acknowledged.

A crisis has drawn this family together but will their honesty pull them apart?

Frank McGuinness has enjoyed huge success at the Abbey Theatre with recent adaptations of John Gabriel Borkman (2010) and The Dead (2012) now he is back with a new play as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival.
