“Kinahan could ask for no better actors than Stephen Brennan and Anita Reeves to bring her characters to life” - The Irish Times

“The performances are stellar, and Kinahan's message is an important one”
- Evening Herald

“a wonderful balance between humour and poignancy…a rich blend of both unintentional hilarity and insightful wit” – entertainment.ie

Seán sits alone in a nursing-home conservatory, abandoned to his memories, when in
storms Patricia, a feisty woman with a zest for life and handsome men in wheelchairs.
A wary intimacy soon develops between the two—an unforeseen relationship by turns charming and combative, tender and funny.

Writer of critically acclaimed international plays Moment and Bogboy (IAC, 2011), Deirdre Kinahan returns to the Irish Arts Center with a new drama that is infused with her hallmark wry humor and humanity. These Halcyon Days is a funny, touching, life-affirming play about facing our fears and bucking against despair. It features remarkable performances by two of Ireland’s leading actors, Stephen Brennan and Anita Reeves.

These Halcyon Days was originally produced by Tall Tales Theatre Company and Solstice Arts Centre, and had its sold-out premiere during the 2012 Dublin Theatre Festival.
