In an old house somewhere in Ireland, a young mother watches over her sleeping baby. But, in Marina Carr’s dark and dangerously funny new play, nothing is as it seems.
The Gregory Project will open with Audrey or Sorrow, a sensational new play by Marina Carr. Audrey or Sorrow will bring audiences on a shape-shifting, time-bending deep dive into a world of family secrets, unimaginable loss, ghosts behaving badly and the endless pull of the sea.
The play exemplifies Marina Carr’s work to date: storytelling that tunnels deeply into the complicated contours of family dynamics; pushing the boundaries of love, power and desire.
It will be the first of two world premieres of work by Carr, marking her 60th birthday and her third year as the Abbey Theatre’s Senior Associate Playwright. Directed by Caitríona McLaughlin, this co-production also celebrates Landmark Productions’ 20th anniversary.
