A Day in May

Pavilion Theatre, Tuesday 16th April 2019

A Day In May – On May 23rd in 2015, Ireland made history by becoming the first nation in the world to introduce marriage equality by popular vote. In his book, A Day In May, Charlie Bird presented the stories of some of those people most deeply affected by the referendum result. Colin Murphy's theatrical adaptation takes us from the dark days of 1983, through the Norris legal battle and decriminalisation, through the divisions within the gay community over civil partnership and right up to #hometovote.

Directed by Gerard Stembridge, it's an often hilarious political masterclass in the style of Murphy's recent sell-out hit Haughey/Gregory, and his crisis plays Guaranteed! and Bailed Out.
