By Geraldine Aron
Directed by Terry Byrne
with Joe Hanley & Clare Barrett
The story of an Irish marriage.
Maisie and Dermot are the perfect picture of incompatibility. Married in 1950, they tell us about their life together from early disillusion to late acceptance.
By turns poignant and hilarious, A Galway Girl shows us the ups and downs of a shared life was a touching mixture of humour and tragedy, held together by a love that endured.
First produced in 1979, A Galway Girl was a hit in England, Ireland and South Africa and remains a beautifully onserved play and a fascinating social document.
Geraldine Aron was born in Galway but spent most of her adult life in Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Her other writing credits include My Brilliant Divorce, Same Old Moon, The Donahue Sisters and The Stanley Parkers. She is also the author of numerous play produced for television and radio, and Toscanini, a screenplay directed by Franco Zeffirelli.
