Post Show Discussion: 11 May

Following the success of its world premiere in 2017, Kevin Barry’s dark comedy, Autumn Royal returns to Project Arts Centre.

A dark, dark comedy set on the northside of Cork city, this play is about life and death, love and hate, hysterical dependency, jealousy, rage, horror, and homicidal notions – or, in other words, it’s a play about a family.

May and Timothy are looking after the father – the father has long since taken to the bed.  Their own lives are curtailed, closed down, and they’re not getting any younger. Should they stay or should they go?

Kevin Barry is the multi-award winning writer of the novels Beatlebone and City Of Bohane and the story collections Dark Lies The Island and There Are Little Kingdoms. Autumn Royal is his first piece written originally for stage and was acclaimed by critics and the public alike during its world premiere run at the Everyman in 2017.
