Synopsis

I cry in the daytime and in the night season am not silent. Psalm 22 Late at night, shoeless, in the rain, a film actor playing the poet Yeats turns up drunk at his appointed Sligo digs. He is met by the grandmother and they dance together to 'Lili Marlene'. In the morning they are discovered, sharing a blanket, by Patrick and his three daughters. Patrick craves tobacco, whiskey and a date with the local barmaid; the sisters yearn for sensation and escape. A funny, modern, intoxicated tale of love and loss, The Night Season premiered at the National Theatre, London, in 2004.
