£22 - £26

A bittersweet meditation on love and loss, told in two parts: Winners and Losers. From acclaimed Irish dramatist Brian Friel (Philadelphia, Here I Come!Dancing at Lughnasa)

In Winners we meet Joe and Mag, a young couple with their lives ahead of them, a secret between them, and a shadow over them.

In Losers, Andy and Hanna cope with the unromantic reality of domestic life after the spark has gone out.

Shot through with humour and pathos, Friel’s play has as much to say about Ireland’s shifting social attitudes as it does about love.

Directed by Emma Jordan, winner of the Irish Times Theatre Award for Best Director.

Produced by the Lyric Theatre Belfast
