Gabriel Byrne on stage. In his own words.
Adapted from Gabriel Byrne’s best-selling memoir of the same name and directed by Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, Walking with Ghosts plays just four performances in Ireland prior to dates at the Edinburgh International Festival in August and in London's West End in September.
As a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin, Gabriel Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city. Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and a commentary on stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, he returns to his home town to reflect on a life’s journey.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Walking with Ghosts is a lyrical homage to the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies.
