Lost language. Lost city. Lost play. ANU reframe a lost O'Casey play as a searing call to action.
Nannie’s Night Out, Seán O’Casey’s 1924 play for the Abbey Theatre had multiple endings – “the ending I wanted, the ending they wanted and the compromise.”
Reframed as a searing call to action, ANU invite audiences to jump start this thrilling project and tumble through the private recesses of the theatre to ‘experience’ the play which explores motherhood and addiction. Utilising O’Casey’s necessity for the multiple endings in the original Nannie’s Night Out, we invite audiences to engage with the contemporary changing landscape of Dublin city as we begin to unearth a whole new set of future endings!
