Northern Lights

Abbey Theatre, Tuesday 17th November - Saturday 21st November

Northern Lights – A play from the award-winning Stephen Jones on the Peacock Stage @ Dublin's Abbey Theatre.

On a rainy night in Dublin, Lloyd (Stephen Jones) and Áine (Seána Kerslake) seek refuge in one another, both harbouring secrets and nurturing ghosts… separate on the surface but connected in the deep.

Northern Lights is a compelling comedic drama, skilfully delivering laughs, tears and a little light that never goes out.

“A thoroughly engaging, emotionally articulate, funny and clever work.”
Irish Independent.
“One of the most acidly funny, needle-sharp short plays I've seen in quite a while”
The Sunday Independent.
“This strongly voiced new play is very funny, with two superb actors sparking off each other hilariously”
The Sunday Times.
“The Performances are beautifully nuanced, expertly shaped by the unfussy direction of Karl Shiels, and the writing by Stephen Jones is sharp and concise with hardly a word out of place.”
– ★★★★★ The Irish Mail on Sunday.
