Seán sits alone in a nursing-home conservatory, abandoned to his memories when in storms Patricia, a feisty woman with a zest for life and handsome men in wheelchairs. A wary intimacy soon develops between the two, an unforeseen relationship by turns charming and combative, tender and funny.

Writer of critically acclaimed international plays MOMENT and BOGBOY, Deirdre Kinahan’s new drama is infused with her hallmark wry humour and humanity. HALCYON DAYS is a celebration of the human spirit and our quest for meaning in even the most seemingly hopeless circumstance.
"An exquisitely devastating piece of writing." Critics' Choice, TimeOut London on MOMENT
