It took a while. But they found each other.
Seán sits alone in a nursing-home conservatory, abandoned to his memories, when in storms Patricia, a feisty woman with a zest for life and handsome men in wheelchairs.
A wary intimacy soon develops between the two – an unforeseen relationship by turns charming and combative, tender and funny.
Writer of critically acclaimed international plays Moment and Bogboy (‘a ferociously funny and unexpectedly shattering writer’ – Metro, London), Deirdre Kinahan’s new drama is infused with her hallmark wry humour and humanity.
Originally produced by Tall Tales Theatre Company and Solstice Arts Centre, and premiered during the 2012 Dublin Theatre Festival, These Halcyon Days is a glorious celebration of the human spirit against the odds.
The show had its New York premiere at the Irish Arts Center in May, and will tour Ireland in June/July 2013.
