Past Productions

Woman on bed talking to nurse - Our Lady of Sligo production photoOur Lady of Sligo tells the compelling story of Mai O’Hara and her flamboyant but destructive relationship with husband Jack, daughter Joanie and the lost country of her childhood. Fuelled by alcohol, passion and despair, it’s the story of a certain class in Ireland that expected more than it got from independence and self-rule.

Sebastian Barry’s second play for Out of Joint shows the same humanity and fierce command of language characteristic of this extraordinary writer. The production was widely praised and Sinéad Cusack’s outstanding performance won her four Best Actress awards as well as an Olivier nomination. In 2000 this production was revived for an extended run at the Irish Repertory Theatre, New York.



‘A tour de force that stops the heart… Sinéad Cusack is quite superb’
-The Independent

‘Barry is a first-rate theatrical poet: every phrase is brushed with eloquence’

‘A work of high art’
-Evening Standard

‘The poignancy of the play, and the tragic wit of Barry’s best writing, cohere into a large and moving image’
-Financial Times
