Dierdre Kinahan, Playwright of HALCYON DAYS – the captivating second show of the 2015 season – offers some insights into her process with the play in her recent interview with MassLive. Focusing on hope, storytelling, and the strength of 1940’s and 1950’s Irish Women, HALCYON DAYS is a touching story that “Tickles the funnybone as much as it pulls at the heartstrings.” Evening Herald
A witty and touching comedy, Halcyon Days was the winner of a prestigious Edinburgh Festival Fringe First Award, and the Irish Times hailed the play as “Touching Drama,” while the Irish Voice added its praise, “A lovely, understated marvel about life, loss and the courage to keep going.”
“In the play, it is a sunny day in the lives of these people (Sean and Patricia, two residents who meet in a nursing home in Dublin). It is the story of two people connecting and loving each other.”
