The Quiet Land Pat Talbot Productions

Tickets: €18

Patrick Talbot Productions In association with Bewley’s Café Theatre presents The Quiet Land by Malachy McKenna.

Winner of the PJ O’Connor Award 2014, The Quiet Land tells a story of two elderly farmers, Eamon and Nashee who meet at a gate on a remote hillside. They are old rivals and old neighbours. Their conversation is of a gentler time. However, there is nothing gentle about today's conversation. They are forced to confront each other with some heartbreaking truths!

The Quiet Land is a celebration of the humour, resilience and endearing innocence of an older generation as it struggles to survive in the rural Ireland of today.  

Directed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh
Starring Des Keogh and Derry Power
