‘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.

Is it significant that the preferred tipple of Fergus Crampton, the crusty father in You Never Can Tell, is ‘Irish and seltzer’, or what we would now call an Irish whiskey and soda?
