Eden    by Eugene O'Brien

Featured in the 2013 Festival


Eugene O'Brien's play is an enthralling and disconcertingly realistic portrayal of the breakdown of a relationship.

Billy and Breda have been married for seven years. They have two young children and nothing to say to each other. He is enthralled by the putative sexual conquests of his best friend Tony; she is still besotted with her husband.

Set in the Midlands, the play begins with Billy at a golf club function on Saturday. Breda is at home dreaming of the following night when she will go out on the town for the first time in an age and be escorted home again by her husband.
