A co-production with Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory.
Living Quarters built on brilliant previous co-productions with Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory with the inimitable Andrew Hilton directing the superb Simon Armstrong (Game of Thrones, King Lear and The Cherry Orchard) in the lead role.
An ordinary army officer suddenly becomes a hero in middle age. He returns in triumph to his battalion base in Donegal to his family and young second wife. But a day of celebration soon turns to tragedy.
The heart-rending story is fascinatingly told as a perpetual reconstruction, presided over by a master of ceremonies, referred to only as ‘Sir’. The characters break from the narrative to plead with him to allow them to alter the course of events, but he ensures they follow on remorselessly to the moment that changed all their lives.
This captivating play, from one of the greatest modern playwrights, has only ever been professionally performed once in England before, when it was directed by Andrew Hilton over 20 years ago. He now returns to this masterful script with a stellar cast.
