About Book

'A beguiling memory play of such subtle and elusive beauty, you feel it might disintegrate if you were to put your finger on it. But the action forms a delicate tissue of loss and regret as the bewitching Hazel causes Mr Berry to reflect on the wife he has lost and the child he never had.' Guardian

'Combines youthful freshness with a wise, rich, wholly lived-in quality. O'Brien digs deep, like elaborate crochet-work where the needles lance to the heart.' Daily Telegraph

'An enchanting exploration of desire and regret.' Observer

Haunted premiered at Manchester's Royal Exchange in 2009 and transfers to the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, in February 2010 before a UK tour.
