Closing Time

The rubble has been cleared, the pub rebuilt and life goes on in resilient Belfast. Or does it? Closing Time tells the story of those who didn't cope, those who didn't move on. Both funny and touching it is a moving exploration of the emotional fragility of people's lives.

Vera and Robbie, once the proud landlords are now scrambling for financial survival while their best friend Joe can't set foot in the home since his wife mysteriously left. As day gives way to night their stories unravel, ever more eroding their ability to cope with each other or themselves.

The Royal National Theatre visits the Festival with this tender and funny new play by award winning Belfast writer Owen McCafferty (Shoot the Crow, Mojo Mickybo).

The cast of Closing Time includes some of Ireland's finest actors, including Jim Norton, Lalor Roddy, Kieran Ahern and Patrick O'Kane, joined by Pam Ferris best known for her performance in The Darling Buds of May as well as films such as Matilda and The Turn of the Screw.
