Thursday 18th November
From the 2 October, in line with government guidelines, we are slowly easing restrictions and increasing our capacity in a safe and considered way. To do this we will still operate in pods of 1's, 2's, 3's & 4's, keeping at least two seats around your pod free. Seating for the moment will be unallocated, and we will notify you of your seats in advance. In order to keep everyone safe we will require you to wear a mask at all times and we will also require proof of vaccine/recovery and ID. Please read our Covid guidelines before you arrive. Thank you for your cooperation with us at this time, and welcome back.

Eden by Eugene O'Brien | Decadent Theatre Company

Eden is the powerful story of an ordinary relationship on an extraordinary weekend. Billy and Breda are approaching their 10th wedding anniversary. Breda is determined that this will be the weekend that saves their marriage. But Billy is more concerned with Imelda, the beautiful young woman he has his eye on. From the writer of the hit RTÉ drama Pure Mule, Eden is a story of stale love and fresh lust in the Irish midlands. Winner of Best New Play at both the Irish Times Theatre Awards and the Stewart Parker Awards in 2001. Starring Maeve Fitzgerald and Patrick Ryan.

Written by the writer of the RTE hit series, Pure Mule. It is a theatrical gem, packed with honesty, heartbreak and bleak humour.

Part of our Droichead Presents Drama Season: Five unique, critically acclaimed shows that will engage and entertain audiences, and also for the first time, Droichead Presents new Drama, a short readings/short works in progress. First set up in 2017, Theatre Club brings people together to see a play, and then allows audiences the opportunity to chat and discuss it afterwards. Like a book club, our audiences can share their views, thoughts and impressions informally post show with the cast and creatives. If this is your first or your 50th play, it doesn't matter,  come along, and be part of the drama at Droichead.
