A Whistle in the Dark

The uprooted Carney family live in Coventry, England. Michael, the eldest, is the exception to the cult of violence that prevails; he would live a civilised life. But he has taken the tragic step: thinking to influence his brothers, he has brought them to live with him and his English wife in his Coventry home. And now two more are arriving from Ireland to descend on him... 

The Abbey Theatre will be hosting a series of special events and initiatives during the Tom Murphy season. These will include a public interview with Tom Murphy conducted by Michael Billington, and a concert of music drawn from the plays of Tom Murphy.

There will be pre-show talks and panel discussions each night except Mondays. All events to be held in the Abbey and Peacock theatres are free of charge.

" a play worthy of every tribute"
