McGuinness Returns

Posted: August 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

We haven’t seen an original play by Frank McGuinness in Ireland since 2002 according to Patrick Lonergan

So it’s great to see the Abbey staging his new play The Hanging Gardens – . It reunites McGuinness with his long-time collaborator Patrick Mason, whose version of Observe the Sons of Ulster that made Mason’s tenure as Abbey Artistic Director so important. 

And it’s a great cast also. Marty Rea gave the best performance I saw l in DruidMurphy 2012  and he’s joined by Niall Buggy his fellow DruidMurphy 2012 cast mate
