A Whistle in the Dark
Settled in Coventry with his new wife Betty, Michael Carney is attempting to lead a new life. But leaving Ireland couldn’t set him free, and once the Carneys descend there’s no way out.
One of Ireland’s greatest playwrights, Tom Murphy’s A Whistle in the Dark is a powerful portrayal of tribal violence and the devastation it brings in its wake. It remains Murphy’s best known and most performed play to this day.
Directed by Jason Byrne, with Seán Mc Ginley in the role of Dada, this fiercely intense production of Tom Murphy’s early masterpiece will be experienced up close in the intimate Peacock theatre, giving the audience a front row seat in the Carneys’ living room.
