PORTIA COUGHLAN at the OLD RED LION THEATRE …. Run ends Saturday 23rd MAY
★★★★ – “With the passionate impact of Greek drama this is a play to be seen.” – Remote Goat
★★★★ – “A poignant, powerful production of an overlooked play that returns it to London” – The Stage
A ferocious, haunting and beautiful Irish tale by Marina Carr, writer of By The Bog of Cats, The Mai and Ullaloo, Portia Coughlan is at the Old Red Lion Theatre for a strictly limited season – run must end Sat 23 May!
Portia Coughlan lives in a monstrous Limbo, haunted by a yearning for her spectral twin brother lying at the bottom of the Belmont river, unable to find any love for her wealthy husband and children, seeking solace in soulless affairs, deeply afraid of what she might do…
“Portia Coughlan packs a hell of a punch. It hurts to look at it. But it has to be seen.” Irish Independent
Last seen at The Royal Court Theatre in 1996.
