Living Quarters reconstructs a day in the life of the Butler family in the Donegal village of Ballybeg. Frank Butler, who has served all his life in the Irish army, returns from United Nations service, a hero, and is met by his four children from his first marriage and his young wife, Anna. As the lines between performance and reality blur, family tensions are laid bare, revealing fractured relationships.
As part of The Friel Project, the Irish Repertory Theatre is delighted to present readings of Brian Friel’s plays. Together with the Mainstage productions, this series represents a retrospective on the work of Brian Friel.
