Fresh from a sold-out run at Galway International Arts Festival, Colm Meaney and Brenda Meaney star in a major new revival of Enda Walsh’s savagely funny play, Bedbound. On stage in 3Olympia Theatre for 6 performances only from 8 to 12 August, 2023.
By Enda Walsh
Directed by Marc Atkinson Borrull
Colm Meaney – whose recent stage performances include Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in the West End and The Iceman Cometh on Broadway – returns to the Irish stage for the first time in over 40 years, to play the once-flamboyant furniture salesman. Brenda Meaney plays his daughter, confined to a small bed.
I give in ta the words. I let go. Go.
Father and Daughter are bound, inextricably, to each other. And the walls are closing in.
He talks frantically about his extraordinary past in furniture sales; she talks no less compulsively about anything at all, to fill the terrible silence in her head.
What would happen if the torrent of words … just stopped?
Directed by Marc Atkinson Borrull, the stellar creative team also includes Jamie Vartan (set and costume), Sinéad McKenna (lighting) and Sinéad Diskin (sound).
