Next week local audiences at The Backstage Theatre, Longford will be treated to a gripping, award winning drama direct from Ireland’s National Theatre, The Abbey, right on their doorstep when it comes on April 15 and 16 at 8.30pm.
“Quietly” is a powerful story about truth and forgiveness. Jimmy and Ian are meeting for the first time in a Belfast bar. They share a violent past. They need to talk. There’s more to the truth than facts
Quietly premiered at the Abbey Theatre in November 2012 and won a Fringe First Award at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Best Actor for Patrick O’Kane in August 2013. According to The Irish Times it was “the best now play of the year” in 2013.
The Irish Daily Mail called it ‘gripping and emotional’ while the Herald simply said “this play is extraordinary and completely unmissable.” Tickets €20/€18 are available on 043 33 47888.
