Eugene O’Brien’s debut play brought to life in Mullingar

Galway’s Decadent Theatre Company are set to bring Eugene O’Brien’s award-winning play Eden to the Mullingar Arts Centre on October 5.

Eden brings to life a gallery of colourful Midland characters. At the heart of his world is a moving, funny, and tragic portrait of the failing marriage of Billy and Breda and the weekend that will make or break them.

Breda’s not lookin’ at all bad, she has certainly lost the weight, there’s no denying that. But Ernie and Evonne’s daughter Imelda is such a beautiful ride of a thing. And Tony thinks he’s James Galway - the man with the golden flute - now Billy wants to show them all that he’s James Galway.

This night it’ll all change. This night is the big night.

From the author of RTÉ’s acclaimed drama series, Pure Mule, Eugene O’Brien’s debut play Eden won Best New Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards and Best New Play for the Stewart Parker Awards.

Eden is a powerful story of an ordinary relationship on an extraordinary weekend.

In a major new national touring production, Decadent Theatre are bringing together a stellar cast including Patrick Ryan (Trivia, Pure Mule ) and Lesley Conroy (The Running Mate, Mattie ).

The production is directed by Andrew Flynn, set design by Ger Sweeney, costumes by Petra Breathnach, sound by Carl Kennedy, and lighting design by Mike O’Halloran.

Eden is coming to the Mullingar Arts Centre on October 5. Tickets are €17/€14 and are available from the Mullingar Arts Centre box office or by phoning the centre on (044 ) 9347777.
