Playhouse patron Field Day Theatre Co., which was founded in Derry in 1980 by playwright Brian Friel and actor Stephen Rea, is returning to the city after a long absence to premiere a special double bill at the Playhouse.
'Farewell', a short new play by the young, up-and-coming Antrim writer Clare Dwyer Hogg, which will be directed and led by Stephen Rea. Dwyer Hogg writes in a clear and sparse style, and, in continuity with Field Day plays past, she pitches her voice to the contemporary local audience while addressing universal themes-in this instance, death and betrayal.
Director: Stephen Rea
Stars: Stephen Rea, Bríd Brennan, Eugene O'Hare, Charlie Bonner.
The second play in the double bill, ‘Half a Glass of Water', by David Ireland, is another new piece, also by an emerging Northern Irish writer. Ireland's writing is resolutelyuncompromising; the results are devastating.
Director: Stephen ReaTickets: £20 / Preview on Monday 3rd December- £12
