A new play by Brian Watkins

‘And it all clicked, like my insides were parts of a puzzle… And it got me thinking, well how on earth does a holiday die?’

Snow falls softly on an uncanny evening. In an old city house, adrift in a modern world, a cheery host gathers a group of friends to try and reignite a forgotten tradition. But when the guest of honour, Gabriel, is unusually late, the participants find themselves unmoored and craving answers.

And there just might not be enough wine, or goose, or time, to fend off some long-neglected anxieties that haunt their souls.

2019 is Druid's year of new writing with all work being world premieres by living writers. In association with Galway International Arts Festival, Druid presents Epiphany which will preview at Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire before its world premiere at the Town Hall Theatre, Galway.

During the run, Stage Left, an exhibition of Epiphany rehearsal sketches by Brian Bourke will be on display in the Town Hall Theatre.
