A new play by Richard Molloy
On a Friday night in Dublin, Stephen Hanrahan ushers a young female colleague in from the summer rain to what was once his marital home. He’s ready to work his magic. But Stephen’s estranged wife and wayward daughter are about to crash back into his life, casting a history of repressed truths and painful secrets into the light.
Set in the build-up to Ireland’s historic divorce referendum of 1995, with a star-studded cast of Carrie Crowley, David Murray, Roxanna Nic Liam, and Susan Stanley, The Separation is an unsettling – and uproarious – journey into the dark heart of a disintegrating Dublin family.
The Separation is directed by Simon Evans whose work in London includes an acclaimed production of The Silence of the Sea at Trafalgar Studios and a revival of Thom Pain at the Print Room, as well as residencies at the National Theatre, the Bush Theatre, and the Donmar Warehouse.
