Theatre: ‘Eden’ at Ballina Arts Centre

Decadent Theatre Company Presents
‘Eden’ by Eugene O’Brien
Directed by Andrew Flynn

With Maeve Fitzgerald & Patrick Ryan

Eden is the powerful story of an ordinary relationship on an extraordinary weekend. Billy and Breda are approaching their 10th wedding anniversary. Breda is determined that this will be the weekend that saves their marriage. But Billy is more concerned with Imelda, the beautiful young woman he has his eye on.

From the writer of hit RTÉ drama Pure Mule, Eden is a story of stale love and fresh lust in the Irish midlands. Eden was the winner of Best New Play at both the Irish Times Theatre Awards and the Stewart Parker Awards in 2001.

“With a bench and a spotlight, they took us on a journey, bringing a world to life in every detail. The ability of two actors to create such raw and vulnerable characters is unforgettable ” Galway International Arts Festival

“Andrew Flynn’s absorbing production unflinchingly exposes the power of story to convince and corrupt, and the discrepancy between appearance and reality ” Irish Theatre Magazine
