4 – 8 NOVEMBER
NAUGHTON STUDIO, LYRIC THEATRE
Set in New York’s Lower East Side on the night of a devastating storm, The Flood plays out between two couples gathered to weather the tempest outside as a hidden tragedy stirs up yet another storm within.
It’s a play about the burning need to connect in conflict with the desire for self-reliance, about the things we’re afraid to say and the prices we pay for not saying them, and about modern female strength colliding with classic male stoicism in a city that insists upon both. The Flood is the first play by writer-director Daniel McCabe. Irish actor John Duddy (plays: The Denizen, For Love/film: Hands of Stone) will reprise his role from the New York production.
‘Reminiscent of the great Eugene O’Neill… In his debut play, McCabe makes the eyes apparent behind the masks of our everyday selves.’ – Colum McCann, 2009 National Book Award winner for Let The Great World Spin and author of Transatlantic.
‘A powerful work. McCabe’s writing is not alone lyrical but insightful.’ – Malachy McCourt, author of NY Times Bestseller A Monk Swimming
Written and Directed by Daniel McCabe
