Summary

I cry in the daytime and in the night season am not silent.
Psalm 22

Late at night, shoeless, in the rain, a film actor playing the poet Yeats turns up drunk at his appointed Sligo digs. He is met by the grandmother and they dance together to ‘Lili Marlene’.

A funny, modern, intoxicated tale of love and loss, The Night Season premiered at the National Theatre, London, in 2004.
