It is three years since Eleanor last left the family home – now her previously distant sister returns with a deal she finds hard to resist…

A mystical comedy-drama from one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights, The Bird Sanctuary centres on one magnificent day of tension, fighting, drinking, crying, laughing and soul searching in the life of the Henryson family. 

Award-winning Irish director Mark Pollard leads a strong cast which includes Clare Kissane (Winner of the Best Actress Award at the 2005 IDGTF Festival)

**** Critics’ Choice : “brilliant… this tight, compulsive production”
