A good time to be able to use those late release tickets, I hadn't thought about going and wouldn't be able to bag a seat at this stage otherwise.

I love this play and think it is a classic of the future. But it does need a delicacy of touch. No probs here.
Brian Cox smashes it in key role of the old guy [ played by Jim Norton, the Conor McPherson regular, in original production] and Dervla Kirwan gives what you would expect, an excellent performance, holding in the emotion, then letting it out. She was less stunned than the actress who played it with Jim Norton. And for the life of me I can't recall who that was. For once my programme library has failed me. [ Someone put me out of my misery] Peter McDonald is very good as the bar owner, Ardal O Hanlon v good and Risteard Cooper who, from the prog notes appears to have stayed in Ireland for his career so far, is a bit of a discovery. Just when you think he is hamming it a bit, he pulls out of the bag a brilliant telling of his 'story'. Something to see.
No interval, 1hr 40mins.
Note, super sound in this show - a ticking clock comes in as they fall silent each time. V effective.
I won't say more cos don't want to spoil it for first timers.
