FLIGHTS

Nominated! Off West End Award for Best Ensemble

On a dark and stormy night, Barry, Cusack and Pa gather again for the anniversary of their childhood friend Liam – killed in a road accident when they were seventeen.

Expecting a crowd and tearing into the cans, three men slowly realise they’re the only ones coming. Caught in the wake of their lingering grief, they must confront their receding youth, their uncertain futures, and the ghost that has held them together.

Award-winning writer John O’Donovan returns to rural Ireland for this haunting, hilarious new play about bereavement, brotherhood and breaking away from your past.

From the team behind the smash hit If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You, “a thorny, satisfyingly complicated play… never less than absorbing” (The Stage).

11 - 29 Feb

7.30pm (Tue-Sat)
