The long-awaited revival of The Wake by Tom Murphy is an excoriating critique of the materialism of Irish life.

Déanann an t-athbheochan atá ar The Wake le Tom Murphy léirmheas feannta ar ábharachas an tsaoil in Éirinn. Athbheochan go deimhin a rabhthas ag faire air le fada an lá.

‘When morality goes out the door anything can happen!’

It’s the 90s. It’s small town Ireland. Vera’s back. The O’Tooles are at each other’s throats. Vera has inherited the family hotel. But what are her plans? Alone in the world, she takes drastic action, locking herself in the hotel with her brother-in-law and Finbar Reilly, her unlikely childhood sweetheart, in tow.

‘What other society, town, civilised country would put up with it?’

The Wake was created by legendary playwright Tom Murphy and brought to life by director Annabelle Comyn. For over 40 years now, his plays have probed the Irish psyche.

The long-awaited revival of The Wake is an excoriating critique of the materialism of Irish life. It’s a wake for the dream of a state with the family at its heart.

‘When morality goes out the door anything can happen!’

Na 90idí. Baile beag in Éirinn. Tá Vera ar ais. Tá muintir O’Toole in éadan a chéile. Tá óstán an teaghlaigh faighte le hoidhreacht ag Vera. Ach cén sórt pleananna atá aici? Is cadhan aonair í sa saol, déanann sí dianbheart; cuireann sí í féin faoi ghlas san óstán in éineacht lena deartháir céile agus le Finbar Reilly, fear a raibh sí an-cheanúil air tráth den saol.

‘What other society, town, civilised country would put up with it?’

Is é an drámadóir cáiliúil Tom Murphy a chum The Wake agus is í an stiúrthóir Annabelle Comyn a thug beocht dó. Le breis is 40 bliain anois, tá a chuid drámaí ag iniúchadh mhuintir na hÉireann.

Déanann an t-athbheochan atá ar The Wake léirmheas feannta ar ábharachas an tsaoil in Éirinn. Athbheochan go deimhin a rabhthas ag faire air le fada an lá. Is tórramh é ar bhrionglóid stáit agus an teaghlach ina lár.
