The Loved Ones by Erica Murray at Dublin Theatre Festival 2023
Rough Magic is delighted to be working with the Gate Theatre to present a world premiere production, The Loved Ones by Erica Murray.
In a remote renovated farmhouse, Nell prepares to scatter her son’s ashes with her grieving daughter-in-law, Orla, while Cheryl-Ann, a visitor from America, settles in for an idyllic break in the wilds of West Clare.
However, their weekend plans will be turned upside down when an unexpected guest arrives looking for shelter, solace and understanding.
In this beautiful world premiere from Erica Murray, commissioned as part of Rough Magic COMPASS programme, a situation as unlikely as it is inevitable will send these four lives reeling, leaving them questioning the true nature of love, loss and birds.
Directed by Rough Magic Associate Director Ronan Phelan, The Loved Ones will premiere at the Gate Theatre as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival between 29th September – 21st October, with tickets on sale now at this link.
