Audrey or Sorrow

written by Marina Carr
directed by Caitríona McLaughlin
A Landmark Productions and Abbey Theatre co-production

Landmark Productions and the Abbey Theatre join forces once again to present a sensational new play by one of Ireland’s leading playwrights – Audrey or Sorrow by Marina Carr. Directed by Caitríona McLaughlin, it will receive its world premiere on the Abbey stage in February 2024.

Audrey or Sorrow will bring together a stellar cast and creative team in this major new work by Marina Carr, in the year of her 60th birthday.

This is a ghost story.

In an old house somewhere in Ireland, a young mother watches over her sleeping baby. But, in Marina Carr’s dark and dangerously funny new play, nothing is as it seems.

Marina Carr is one of Ireland’s leading playwrights, whose work is regularly produced in leading theatres internationally. Audrey or Sorrow is a shape-shifting, time-bending deep dive into a world of family secrets, unimaginable loss, ghosts behaving badly and the endless pull of the sea.
