This summer Colm Meaney and Brenda Meaney star in a major new revival of Enda Walsh’s savagely funny play, Bedbound – on stage in Galway!
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.
Enda Walsh’s savagely funny play - a sensation in Dublin, London and New York - gets a major revival.
Colm Meaney - whose recent stage performances include Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in the West End and The Iceman Cometh on Broadway - returns to the Irish stage for the first time in 40 years, to play the once-flamboyant furniture salesman. Brenda Meaney plays his daughter, confined to a small bed.
What would happen if the torrent of words - just stopped?
Directed by Marc Atkinson Borrull, the stellar creative team also includes Jamie Vartan (set and costume), Sinéad McKenna (lighting) and Sinéad Diskin (sound).
Bedbound is the latest in a series of significant productions of Enda Walsh’s plays from Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival, which have toured widely internationally - including Misterman, starring Cillian Murphy (shortly to be seen on National Theatre at Home), and the world premieres of Medicine, Arlington and Ballyturk.
