'Big writing, big heart ... beautifully written'
★★★★ Arts Desk

Three generations of a Dublin family on one epic day.

Teen discos, late night taxis, first kisses, home nurses, school classrooms, babies, immigrants and seagulls. Intimate and sweeping, joyous and funny, it’s different things at different times.

Dylan Coburn Gray was the stand-out winner of Soho Theatre’s Verity Bargate Award for Citysong in 2017, with the judges describing it as ‘epic’ and ‘spellbinding’.

The Abbey Theatre and Soho Theatre co–produce the world premiere of Dylan Coburn Gray’s Award–winning play.

'An Irish family’s entrancing journey across generations...nimble and vivid…sumptuous'
