Living Quarters

A captivating play from Brian Friel that has only ever been professionally performed once in England before.

Written by Irish playwright Brian Friel ('Translations', 'Faith Healer', 'Dancing At Lughnasa'), 'Living Quarters' is a heart-wrenching play that follows an army officer who returns as a hero to his battalion base in Donegal, when a day of celebration soon unfurls as tragedy.

Told as a perpetual reconstruction presided over by a master of ceremonies known only as 'Sir', the characters break from the narrative to plead with him to change their plot and fate, making the way the story is told as fascinating as the tale itself.
