To mark the 50th anniversary of John B Keane’s The Field, a major new production will run at The Gaiety Theatre from April 23 – May 16.

The Field is a compelling and masterful piece of writing, acclaimed as ‘a magnificent play’ (Evening Herald). Starring Michael Harding in the iconic role of the Bull McCabe, one of the greatest roles ever played on an Irish stage, don’t miss the only Irish performances of this brilliant play.

First produced in 1965, John B Keane based the story on the 1959 murder of Moss Moore, a bachelor farmer in Co. Kerry. The Field captivated audiences with its dark portrayal of life in north Kerry and continues to strike a chord with audiences throughout the world. At its core is the enduring link between the Irish people and ‘the land’.

The Association of Drama Adjudicators President, Terry Byrne is currently engaged in acting on stage in this production
