Watch on demand from anywhere in the world | For two weeks only!

Colm Meaney and Brenda Meaney star in a major new revival of Enda Walsh’s savagely funny play, Bedbound!

Audiences were blown away by Colm and Brenda Meaney's performances during sell-out runs this summer. Now you can experience this intimate, close-up look at Enda Walsh’s explosive two-hander from the comfort of your home.

This on-demand performance was filmed in front of a live audience during its critically acclaimed run at the 2023 Galway International Arts Festival.


‘Colm Meaney … a masterclass performance’

The Arts Review

‘Brenda Meaney … magnetic, electric, extraordinary’

RTÉ Arena

Colm Meaney - whose recent stage performances included Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in the West End and The Iceman Cometh on Broadway - returned to the Irish stage for the first time in over 40 years, to play the once-flamboyant furniture salesman. Brenda Meaney played his daughter, confined to a small bed.

I give in ta the words. I let go. Go.

Father and Daughter are bound, inextricably, to each other. And the walls are closing in.

He talks frantically about his extraordinary past in furniture sales; she talks no less compulsively about anything at all, to fill the terrible silence in her head.

What would happen if the torrent of words … just stopped?

Landmark Productions joined forces once again with co-producing partners Galway International Arts Festival for the latest in a series of significant productions of Enda Walsh’s plays.
