Field Day Theatre Company presents Farewell/ Half a Glass of Water Directed by Stephen Rea Monday 3rd December 2012 to Saturday 8th December 2012 8pm

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 Rea

Tickets: £20 / Preview on Monday 3rd December- £12
