Gabriel Byrne on stage. In his own words.
Adapted by Gabriel Byrne from his best-selling memoir of the same name, and directed by Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price.
As a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin, Gabriel Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city. Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and a commentary on stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, he returns to his home town to reflect on a life’s journey.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Walking with Ghosts is a lyrical homage to the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies.
Directed by three-time Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, the creative team also includes Sinéad McKenna (set and lighting designer); Joan O’Clery (costume designer) and Sinéad Diskin (sound designer and composer).
Age Guidance: 12+ Contains strong language and adult themes.
Running Time: 2 hours 15mins including a 15-min interval
