Hen's Night

 

“The Hen Night Epiphany”

 

BOOK NOW!

 

(Now cast see details below)


By Jimmy Murphy
Dir. Garry Thomas

 

Set after the recent economic crash, the play represents a bachelorette party taking place in a rundown rural cottage some miles from Dublin. The newlyweds-to-be have purchased this country abode cheaply - the previous owners having suffered foreclosure.

 

Now looking forward to her new life in this out-of the-way little house, the bride, Una, celebrates the so-called Hen Night with her two closest friends, Kelly and Triona; her future mother-in-law Olive; and her future husband’s godmother, Anta. The revelry is short circuited, however, when troubling secrets surface. The bonds that connect these women are severely strained.

 

“Murphy’s piece is a subtle comedy that shades into poignant, thoughtful drama...”


“... the real crux of the play isn’t the overtly obvious subjects of abuse, promiscuity or relationship troubles, but the deep-rooted issues of loyalty, betrayal and acceptance.”
