This production will be the very first time a Tom Murphy play has ever been staged at the Gate Theatre. The Gigli Concert is a fiercely satirical and beautifully crafted play about the endurance of the human spirit and our ability to achieve the impossible.
JPW King (played by Declan Conlon) is a ‘Dynamatologist’ caught between the demands of Mona his mistress, Helen, the unattainable love of his life, and an insatiable taste for vodka. For King, the recurring question is how to get through each day. Then a mysterious Irishman (Denis Conway) walks into his office wanting to sing like the great Italian tenor, Beniamino Gigli..

Tom Murphy is regarded as one of the greatest living Irish playwrights.
