As the Beast Sleeps archiveKyle is loyal to his wife, his best mate and his boss in the organisation - and they love him as a husband, a brother and a son - but, with changing times and the emerging peace process, Kyle finds himself lost in the shadows of transition, uncertainty and betrayal. The explosive contradictions of life in Northern Ireland today, ignite Gary Mitchell's searing drama of suspense and violence. In a world turned upside down, peace and brutality walk side-by-side while love and loyalty are sacrificed to the new order. As the Beast Sleeps premiered at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin in 1998 to high acclaim.
