ERT’s new artistic director, Adrian Rawlins, directs the first in-house production of the year – ‘The Night Season’ by Rebecca Lenkiewicz. “I first saw this play at the National Theatre in 2004 and was so riveted I never wanted it to end. It’s such a rich, touching and hilarious tale following the lives of the Kennedy family as they each fall noisily in and out of love. We have a fantastic cast in place and my mission is to make it as enjoyable for you as it was for me back then.”
Late at night, shoeless, in the rain, an actor turns up at his appointed digs with the Kennedy family in rural Ireland.
Lily, the eccentric Grandma, just wants to know a man one last time.
Patrick, the drunken father, craves tobacco, whiskey and a date with the local barmaid…
The three sisters yearn for sensation and escape.
The Night Season is a funny, modern and intoxicating tale of loves, losses and misdemeanours.
“He doesn’t smell married to me. Married men smell of rubber.” (LILY)
