You Never Can Tell

‘I have always said that the great advantage of a hotel is that it’s a refuge from home life’

After 18 years abroad, Mrs. Clandon returns to England with her unruly teenage twins and forthright daughter. They set up residence in a seaside hotel. Their new life becomes increasingly complicated by her estranged husband and a love-struck dentist. Can a mysterious waiter help them all to live happily ever after?

Bernard Shaw’s dazzling wit makes You Never Can Tell a joyful and unpredictable battle of the sexes.

This Christmas, the Abbey Theatre continues our celebration of one of Ireland’s greatest writers with this wonderful comedy directed by Conall Morrison.
