Premiär 9 november 2016: These halcyon days – GEST
GEST are delighted to present the Scandinavian premiere of These Halcyon Days by Deirdre Kinahan.
9 November – 10 December at Gothenburg English Studio Theatre.
A funny, touching, life-affirming play about facing our fears, told with wry humour and humanity.Seán sits alone in a nursing home, abandoned by his memories, when in storms Patricia, a feisty woman with a zest for life. She brings music, laughter and hope with her and an unforeseen relationship develops, by turns charming and combative, tender and witty. A tale of friendship and adventure, a glorious celebration of the human spirit against the odds.”Tickles the funny bone as much as it pulls at the heartstrings… Kinahan’s message is an important one” – Evening Herald
Directed by Gary Whitaker
These Halcyon Days was awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival and nominated Best New Play in the Irish Times Theatre Awards 2012.
