These Halcyon Days @ Civic Theatre

Seán sits alone in a nursing-home, abandoned to his memories, when in storms Patricia, a feisty woman with a zest for life and handsome men in wheelchairs. This wonderfully funny, life-affirming play by the writer of Moment and Bogboy is infused with Deirdre Kinahan’s hallmark humour and humanity. Nominated for Best New Play, Irish Times Theatre Awards for 2012, it features remarkable performances from two of Ireland’s leading actors, Anita Reeves and Stephen Brennan. Tender and touching, These Halcyon Days is a glorious celebration of the human spirit against the odds.
