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.

There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
