Sometimes I dream… of anything! Of anything. Other than this.

In the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, Maureen Folan – a plain, lonely woman, tied to her manipulative and ageing mother, Mag – comes alive at her first and possibly last prospect of a new life. But Mag has other ideas; and her interference sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play’s breathtaking conclusion.

Rachel O’Riordan directs a major revival of this darkly comic, award-winning play by Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; The Lieutenant of Inishmore), starring Adam Best (Giri/Haji),  Ingrid Craigie (Roadkill; The Cripple of Inishmaan), Orla Fitzgerald (The Young Offenders) and Kwaku Fortune (Line of Duty; Normal People).
