Summary

In the summer of 1967 Greta Garbo comes to Donegal.

Ireland is on the verge of violent change. Two couples are on the verge of parting. A woman tries to save her family, while a girl tries to save her future. Seemingly above it all is the loveliest and loneliest of all women, the great Garbo. But when the gods arrive, they can cause havoc, not least to themselves, as the divine Greta is to learn.

Frank McGuinness’s Greta Garbo Came to Donegal premiered at the Tricycle Theatre, London, in January, 2010.
