Synopsis

The Wake by Tom Murphy

The most distinctive, the most restless, the most obsessive imagination at work in the Irish theatre today Brian Friel The Wake recounts the story of a woman, returning from the USA to her home town in Ireland. As her family learn of her years as a prostitute, she learns their attitudes and Irish society in general. A homecoming play, haunting yet fiercely comic.
