But the arrival of his estranged daughter Mary shows him the time has arrived to come to terms with not only times past but also times yet to come. A funny, compassionate play from the author of The Weir. Irish story telling at its best, bringing the characters to vivid life with a mixture of lyricism, realism and black humour. Opening at the Old Vic due to building delays at The Royal Court theatre. The production will transfer to The Royal Court on 17th February.Performers Brian Cox, Bronagh Gallagher, Andrew Scott.
