World Premiere of a new play by Frank McGuinness
‘Now we have a family, a rivalry, a purpose’
The Hanging Gardens is the first new play by Frank McGuinness at the Abbey Theatre in 14 years. One of the country’s most important playwrights offers an unflinching look at the reality of Irish family life.
An ageing writer and his wife sit in their garden. They are surrounded by a lifetime’s work; their home, their gardens and their grown up children. A crisis has drawn this family together but will their honesty pull them apart?
Frank McGuinness has enjoyed huge success at the Abbey Theatre with recent adaptations of John Gabriel Borkman (2010) and The Dead (2012). Now he returns with a new play as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival.
